    Report of the Regional Technical Workshop on Sustainable Marine Cage Aquaculture Development. Muscat, Sultanate of Oman, 25–26 January 2009 2009

    The Regional Commission for Fisheries (RECOFI) Regional Technical Workshop on Sustainable Marine Cage Aquaculture Development, held from 25 to 26 January 2009 in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman, was organized in view of the growing importance and interest of this aquaculture sub-sector across the region. The workshop focus was on environmental impact assessment and monitoring, and aquaculture licensing for marine aquaculture cage systems and aimed at identifying constraints and shortcomings that requi red to be dealt with to support the development of the cage industry and facilitate investments from the private sector. The document contains a set of suggestions and recommendations with regards to technical and policy requirements needed to support the growth of the aquaculture sector as a whole and more specifically cage fish farming. The report also contains three review documents on marine cage aquaculture in the region, regulation of Norwegian net-cage fish farming, and a review on cage a quaculture licensing procedures prepared as background discussion papers for the workshop. With specific regard to environmental impact assessment (EIA) the discussions held at the workshop clearly indicate that there is a need for the region and individual Commission members to develop an ad hoc EIA format based on the conditions of the local marine environment. A proposed cage aquaculture licence procedure was discussed and proposed at the workshop based on the format developed and adopted by the Sultanate of Oman.

    No results found.

    The results of commercial trial fishing for lanternfish, Benthosema pterotum, in the Gulf of Oman are described. The fishing took place during eight cruises over the period 13 September 1989 - 12 February 1990 using the R.V. Jeng Bang, a vessel from the People's Democratic Republic of Korea. Acoustic sampling and test fishing were undertaken and additional information on yield of fish meal from raw product and mesh and trawl net design were recorded. The survey recorded information on the distri bution of the lantern fish, surface temperature and length frequency of B.pterotum. During the survey 310 fishing hauls were undertaken. Estimates of biomass were calculated for survey strata. Detailed catch data and gear design are given together with an analysis of the catch relationship.
