    The Symposium on Interactions between Social, Economic and Ecological Objectives of Inland Commercial and Recreational Fisheries and Aquaculture, was organized in conjunction with the twenty-fifth session of the European Inland Fisheries Advisory Commission (EIFAC) in Antalya, Turkey, from 21 to 24 May 2008. The symposium was attended by 255 participants from 26 countries. The symposium programme comprised 57 oral presentations and 24 posters. The symposium made considerable progress t owards understanding the interactions between ecological/environmental and socio-economic/governance objectives for fisheries and aquaculture. There was a broad recognition that inland fisheries and aquaculture need to shift from a sectoral view where they are treated in isolation to an integrated, multidisciplinary systems view. The symposium provided a number of clear and comprehensive conclusions and recommendations to the twenty-fifth session of EIFAC for follow-up by the appropria te responsible bodies.

    The symposium on Interactions between Social, Economic and Ecological Objectives of Inland Commercial and Recreational Fisheries and Aquaculture, was organized in conjunction with the Twenty-Fifth Session of the European Inland Fisheries Advisory Commission (EIFAC) in Antalya, Turkey, from 21 to 24 May 2008. The symposium objectives were: 1) To review the wide range of socio-economic and ecological interactions between fi sheries and aquaculture and the roles of various stakeholders with respect to these interactions. 2) To identify where future research should focus and propose measures to decrease interactions that compromise sustainable development and management, and promote interactions that contribute to sustainability. 3) To provide information to policy and decision makers to contribute to the general awareness of trends in socio-economic and ecological interactions within and between the sector and other rural sectors. 4) To facilitate dialogue betwee n scientists, researchers, fi sherfolk, aquaculturists and policy and decision makers on the motives, interactions and interests of stakeholders. 5) To advise EIFAC on appropriate management and development measures and tools for inland fi sheries and aquaculture in Europe. This Occasional Paper, in conjunction with a special issue of Fisheries Management and Ecology, represents the proceedings of the symposium. The Report of the symposium was published in 2008 as EIFAC FAO Fisheries and Aqauculture Report No. 871. The symposium made considerable progress towards understanding the interactions between ecological/environmental and socio-economic/governance objectives for fi sheries and aquaculture. There was a broad recognition that inland fi sheries and aquaculture need to shift from a sectoral view where they are treated in isolation to an integrated, multi-disciplinary systems view.

    The twenty-fifth session of the European Inland Fisheries Advisory Commission (EIFAC) was held in Antalya, Turkey, from 21 to 28 May 2008, in concomitance with a Symposium on Interactions between Social, Economic and Ecological Objectives of Inland Commercial and Recreational Fisheries and Aquaculture. The session reviewed EIFAC’s activities since 2006 in the fields of fishery biology and management, aquaculture, protection of the aquatic environment and social and economic issues. The session revised and decided EIFAC’s future programme of work, in particular the activities which should be carried out until the next session of the Commission in 2010, and reviewed the functioning of EIFAC. The twenty-sixth session will be preceded by a Symposium that will focus on multifunctional inland aquaculture.
