    This report summarizes the proceedings and outcomes of the “Regional Workshop for Latin America and the Caribbean and for North America on the Development of a Global Information System for Farmed Types of Aquatic Genetic Resources (incorporating a review of strategic priorities for a Global Plan of Action)” held from 21 to 24 September 2020 (with a final wrap-up session held on 1 October 2020). The workshop was attended by National Focal Points for Aquatic Genetic Resources from Latin America and the Caribbean and for North America, officials from ministries and other governmental organizations, and also by representatives of three regional aquaculture organizations. The objectives of the workshop were to promote standardized use of nomenclature and terminology in the description and categorization of AqGR, especially below the level of species (i.e. farmed types), to identify priority regional stakeholders who would benefit from an information system, such as the Registry, to evaluate the key elements of the prototype Registry using regionally relevant species and their farmed type and, for each of the four Priority Areas of the GPA, to review the strategic priorities and propose concrete activities under each. Participants identified government resource managers, academia and researchers, policy-makers, and intergovernmental organizations as the principal stakeholders and beneficiaries of the Registry. These same stakeholders would also be the main contributors of information to the system. Aquaculture producers were also identified as major contributors of information. It was thus noted that special consideration needs to be given to engaging private industry and demonstrating the value of the information system to the private sector. Participants made recommendations on the information sought for the Registry and, in particular, expressed concern over Members’ capacity to record information on production of farmed types of aquatic genetic resources.
