    The Ad Hoc Meeting of Experts on the External Evaluation of the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) Committee on Aquaculture (CAQ) and its Networks was held in Rome, Italy, from 29 to 30 March 2004. The meeting was attended by six experts from CAQ in their personal capacity and by the consultant recruited for undertaking the evaluation. Initially only an external evaluation of the SIPAM network (Information System for the Promotion of Aquaculture in the Mediterran ean) was recommended at the third session of the Committee and endorsed by the Commission at its twenty-seventh session. Subsequently, the call for a full external evaluation of CAQ, including all of its Networks, since its inception was requested by the Commission at its twenty-eight session in view of the forthcoming entry into force of the GFCM autonomous budget. On the basis of the report of the consultant, the Meeting of Experts reviewed and summarized major achievements of CAQ and its networks. It identified strengths and weaknesses of its modus operandi and provided recommendations towards addressing the limitations faced by the Committee over recent years. In support of a sustainable development of the Mediterranean aquaculture sector and in the context of the autonomous budget, the Meeting concurred that the size and composition of an expanded GFCM Secretariat would have the desirable influence on the functioning of the CAQ and its networks.

    The seventh session of the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) was held in Rome, Italy, from 19 to 22 October 2004. It was attended by delegates from nineteen Members of the Commission. The Committee reviewed work by its subcommittees during the intersessional period, appraised scientific activities, formulated advice on fishery management and identified complementary research needs. It agreed on its workplan for 2005. In particular, SAC emphasized the need to ensure the availability of more scientific contributions, data and analysis, as well as a greater coverage of GFCM Geographical Sub-Areas (GSAs). It stressed the need to foster on task-oriented advisory process driven by the Commission and to formulate multidisciplinary management advice, encompassing multispecies fisheries and in conformity with an ecosystem approach. SAC reiterated the importance of identifying indicators and reference points for each fishery and operati onal unit. It strongly advised to refrain expending deepwater fishing operations beyond 1 000-meter depth. The Committee provided additional suggestions for increasing its functional efficiency. It favoured the formalization of the Coordinating meeting of the Sub-Committees and the strengthening of the Joint GFCM/ICCAT Working Group on Large Pelagics through updating its mandate. SAC also called for greater cooperation with the Committee on Aquaculture (CAQ) on selected issues.
