    The Fisheries Resources Monitoring System (FIRMS) is a partnership of intergovernmental fisheries organizations that share a wide range of high-quality information on the global monitoring and management of marine fishery resources. FIRMS aims to provide decision-makers with the best and most authoritative information possible in order to develop effective fisheries policies in accordance with the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries.

    This is the final version of the Report of the Regional Commission for Fisheries/Fisheries and Resources Monitoring System (RECOFI–FIRMS) Data Call Workshop – Updating stocks and fisheries inventories, Virtual Meeting, 3–4 August 2021. This workshop focused on the update of the RECOFI–FIRMS national inventories on fisheries and the development of the RECOFI inventory on marine resources based on its priority species. Recommendations from the workshop included: i) the nomination of a National Focal Points (NFPs) for Minimum Data Reporting (MDR) and for the Fisheries and Resources Monitoring System (FIRMS), who would closely collaborate; ii) an increased collaboration with the FIRMS Secretariat towards the compilation and publishing of up-to-date marine resource and fisheries inventories and fact sheets; and iii) the utilization of the RECOFI–FIRMS inventories and templates for any submission of national stock information to the Working Group on Fisheries Management (WGFM).

    Aquaculture development 6 - Use of wild fishery resources for capture-based aquaculture 2011
    These technical guidelines have been produced to supplement the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries (the Code). The Code and many international agreements and conferences highlight the benefi ts of and need for adopting an ecosystem approach to fi sheries and an ecosystem approach to aquaculture through the principles and concepts elaborated therein. The objective of the guidelines is to assist countries to develop aquaculture, in particular that involving signifi cant use of natural resources, in a sustainable way that produces the greatest social and economic benefi ts without compromising the underlying resource base for future generations. The heavy dependence of capture-based aquaculture (CBA) on wild resources and its implications for wild populations have been increasingly recognized in the last decade. These guidelines address the actual and potential impacts of wild-seed harvest on target and non-target (bycatch) species (including threatened sp ecies), on biodiversity, and on the environment and marine ecosystem. The guidelines also consider harvest and post-collection practices, grow-out, feed and broodstock, social and economic factors, and governance considerations. They also identify CBA principles and guidelines for good practices, and provide numerous illustrative case studies from a diverse range of species and fisheries.
