    The workshop was organized by the FAO Subregional Office for the Caribbean in collaboration with the Development Planning and Inland Water Resources and Aquaculture Services of the FAO Fisheries Department, Rome. It was hosted by the Government of Saint Lucia, and attended by 15 participants from seven countries, four regional institutions and the FAO Fisheries Department. The syntheses of the national experiences and status of aquaculture development in the Lesser Antilles reflected a signifi cant level of diversity in the scale of activities among the island nations; they also revealed many similarities in the results and present status of aquaculture development in the subregion. The case studies elicited very positive comments and enquiries from the country representatives. In the plenary deliberations, to identify the constraints to and opportunities for developing aquaculture sustainably in the subregion, participants recognized the need to rank the aquaculture development act ivities based on individual country-priorities and stage of development. The workshop agreed that participants would consult with the decision-makers in their respective countries and communicate a priority-list of needs for possible technical assistance to the technical secretary of the workshop. It was also agreed that such a list would be used to identify common themes that could form the basis for a possible subregional Technical Cooperation Programme (TCP) project proposal.

    In 2003 the Government of Georgia requested the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to provide technical assistance for the sustainable development and management of the fishery sector in the country. FAO, through its Technical Cooperation Programme (TCP), approved project TCP/GEO/2904(A), entitled: “Strengthening the Capacity of the Department of Fisheries to Support Fisheries Sector Rehabilitationâ€Â. The aim of this Fisheries Circular is first to inform those i nterested in fisheries and aquaculture in Georgia about the current situation with regard to fishery resources and their utilization in the country. Second, it attempts to provide an example of a consultative and participative policy and legal framework development process. The approach used in the preparation of the Master Plan for Fishery Sector Development in Georgia (2005–2020), the Action Plan for Fishery Sector Management and Development in Georgia (2005–2008), and the Law of Georgia for F isheries and Aquaculture could also be applicable in other countries in transition that have a relatively small fishery sector. The documents presented here are considered as final versions and cleared as such by the Department of Fisheries (DoF) of the Ministry of Agriculture of Georgia. All the documents are also available in the Georgian language from the DoF in Tbilisi. At the time of publication, the DoF is steering the approval process of the Master Plan, Action Plan and Law within t he Government of Georgia and has already started to implement the Action Plan. The Review of the Current Status of Fisheries Resources and Utilization in Georgia is presented in the first part of this Fisheries Circular. The second part contains the final version of the Master Plan for Fishery Sector Development in Georgia, 2005–2020, while the third part provides the Action Plan for Fishery Sector Management and Development in Georgia, 2005–2008. The final draft version of the Law of Geor gia for Fisheries and Aquaculture is presented in the fourth part. The last part contains a summary report of the proceedings and recommendations of the Workshop on Fisheries Management and Development (Batumi, 19 August 2004), the Workshop on Fisheries Legislation and Management, (Tbilisi, 11 and 18 February 2005), and the National Conference on Fisheries Management and Development in Georgia (Tbilisi, 15–16 June 2005).
