    International Guidelines for the Management of Deep-sea Fisheries in the High Seas/Directives internationales sur la gestion de la pêche profonde en haute mer/ Directrices Internacionales para la Ordenación de las Pesquerías de Aguas Profundas en Alta Mar 2009
    These International Guidelines for the Management of Deep-sea Fisheriesin the High Seas were developed through a participatory process involving fisheries experts, fishery managers from governments, the fishing industry,academia and non-governmental and intergovernmental organizations. The guidelines are designed to provide guidance on management factors ranging from an appropriate regulatory framework to the components of a good data collection programme, and include the identification of key management considerations and measures necessary to ensure the conservation of target and non-target species, as well as affected habitats. These guidelines are voluntary and constitute an instrument of reference to help States and RFMO/As in formulating and implementing appropriate measures for the management of deep-sea fisheries in the high seas. Ces Directives internationales sur la gestion de la pêche profonde en haute mer ont été développées au moyen d’un processus participatif qui a impliqué des experts des pêches, des gestionnaires des pêches des gouvernements, l’industrie des pêches, des universités ainsi que des organisations non-gouvernementales et intergouvernementales. Les directives sont conçues pour donner des orientations sur différents aspects de la gestion allant du cadre réglementaire adéquat jusqu’aux composantes d’un bon système de cueillette de données, et elles incluent l’identification des considérations de gestions clés et des mesures nécessaires pour protéger les espèces cibles, les espèces accessoires et les habitats. Les directives sont facultatives et constituent un instrument de référence pour aider les États et les organisations et arrangements régionaux de gestion des pêches à formuler et à mettre en oeuvre des mesures appropriées pour la gestion des pêches profondes en haute mer. Estas Directrices Internacionales para la Ordenación de las Pesquerías de Aguas Profundas en Alta Mar fueron elaboradas a través de un proceso participativo en el que intervinieron expertos en pesquerías,administradores de pesquerías de distintos gobiernos, la industria pesquera, universidades y organizaciones no gubernamentales e intergubernamentales. Las directrices se diseñaron para proporcionar orientación sobre factores de ordenación que abarcan tanto el establecimiento de un marco regulador adecuado como la elaboración de un programa eficaz de recopilación de datos, pasando por la identificación de las consideraciones fundamentales sobre la ordenación y por las medidas que deben adoptarse para garantizar la conservación de las especies que son o no objeto de pesca, así como la de los habitats afectados. Las directrices tienen carácter voluntario y constituyen un instrumento de referencia para ayudar a los Estados y a las organizaciones y los acuerdos regionales de ordenación pesquera en la elaboración y aplicación de las medidas adecuadas para la ordenación de las pesquerías de aguas profundas en alta mar.

    This document contains the report of the Workshop on Data and Knowledge in Deep-sea Fisheries in the High Seas held in Rome from 5 to 7 November 2007. The Workshop was convened to review an initial draft of the International Guidelines as called for by the FAO Committee on Fisheries at its twenty-seventh session in 2007. This expert consultation was preceded by the Expert Consultation on Deep-sea Fisheries in the High Seas, held in Bangkok, in November 2006. The consultation adopted a draft of the international guidelines to be forwarded on to a technical consultation for review and adoption.

    Report of the Technical Workshop on Deep-sea Fisheries and Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems of the Eastern Central Atlantic, Dakar, Senegal, 8-10 November 2016 / Rapport de l’Atelier technique sur la pêche en eaux profondes et les écosystèmes marins vulnérables dans l’Atlantique Centre-Est, Dakar, Sénégal, 8-10 novembre 2016 2017

    The FAO Technical Workshop on Deep-sea Fisheries and Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems of the Eastern Central Atlantic took place in Dakar, Senegal, from 8 to 10 November 2016. The meeting was attended by 32 participants who contributed in their individual capacities to the discussions on the subjects of deep-sea fisheries and benthic habitats of the CECAF region. The participants had backgrounds in fisheries management, research, environment, fishing industry, non-governmental organizations, regiona l organizations, and projects. Invited experts provided case studies and examples of deep-sea fisheries management and processes to protect vulnerable marine ecosystems (VMEs) from the north, western-central and south Atlantic regions. The three-day workshop was organized into two main parts, with 2.5 days dedicated to discussions on deep-sea fisheries, and VMEs in the CECAF area (Part 1), and a half-day session specifically dedicated to awareness raising on sponges (Part 2). The deep-sea fisher ies and VME component of the workshop aimed to support the implementation of the FAO International Guidelines on the Management of Deep-sea Fisheries in the High Seas (adopted 2008) in the region, and to increase knowledge and share experiences of the importance of addressing potential impacts from deep-sea bottom contact fisheries on VMEs. Overviews were provided on current global and regional instruments, processes and practices for the management of deep-sea fisheries and protection of VMEs, and their relevance to the CECAF region discussed. Deep-sea fisheries in EEZs and ABNJ were characterized and current available information on benthic habitats were reviewed. This component of the workshop resulted in a suite of advice and recommendations for the CECAF Scientific Sub-Committee to consider for recommendations to the next Committee meeting. The Sponges component of the workshop addressed the objectives of Work Package 8.2 of the SponGES project “Deep-sea Sponge Grounds Ecosystems of the North Atlantic: an integrated approach towards their preservation and sustainable exploitation”, which aims to promote and facilitate dialogue and knowledge transfer between scientists, managers, policy-makers, and stakeholders from the Atlantic region on SponGES, through round-table dialogues.
