    Report of the RECOFI - FIRMS Workshop on Resources and Fisheries Inventories, Cairo, Egypt, 12–14 July 2011. 2012

    The RECOFI–FIRMS Workshop on Resources and Fisheries Inventories was held in Cairo, Egypt, from 12 to 14 July 2011. The goal of this Workshop was to formalize an inventory of marine resources/stocks and fisheries for the Regional Commission for Fisheries (RECOFI) area (at both the national and regional levels) for its eventual publication through the Fishery Resources Monitoring System (FIRMS [http://firms.fao.org/]). This inventory will be used as the backbone for regular reporting of status an d trends of stocks and fisheries under the RECOFI mandate, using the Web-based framework and approaches established by FIRMS. Ten representatives from six RECOFI Members (Bahrain, Iran [Islamic Republic of], Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia) and a resource person from Iraq participated in the Workshop. The Workshop was successful in developing a skeleton for a regional marine resources and fisheries inventory. The skeleton of the regional fisheries inventory was elaborated based on the “thr ee-dimensional diagram” approach, which allows the many facets of fisheries and their relationships to be visually represented and positioned. Fishery units were defined as fishing activities, and consistently with the RECOFI minimum data requirements. The skeleton of the regional marine resources inventory was initiated building from the 17 RECOFI priority species/groups, and will require further expert inputs from research institutes of the region. The Workshop dedicated a substantial amount o f time to training on the inventory guidelines in order to develop capacity to extend the agreed inventory skeleton with the necessary data input. The participants appraised the potential benefits of the inventory approach in support of a regional review of management measures at the national level, which will eventually support fisheries management in the RECOFI area.
