The four-day programme included presentations on CITES key principles and requirements and their applicability in the fisheries sector; clarifications on commercially exploited aquatic species listed in CITES Appendix II; opportunities for collaboration between CITES and fisheries authorities; correlations between CITES and fisheries management; an introduction on how to use the FAO-CITES Legal Study and Guide; the relevance of FAO’s PSMA and CDS; and knowledge-sharing on practical experiences of CITES implementation at national and regional levels. This is the second of a series of subregional workshops on CITES and fisheries, organized by the CITES Secretariat and FAO. The first subregional workshop was held with Pacific Island countries. The next subregional workshop is planned for certain Latin American countries in 2023.
