    Implementation of the International Plan of Action to deter, prevent and eliminate, illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (chinese version) 2007
    These guidelines have been produced to support implementation of the International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (IPOA-IUU). They are addressed to decision-makers and policy-makers associated with the management of fisheries, but they should also be of interest to fishing industries and other parties. The IPOA-IUU is consistent with the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, as well as with the 1993 Agreement to Promote Complia nce with International Conservation and Management Measures by Fishing Vessels on the High Seas, the 1995 Agreement for the Implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea of 10 December 1982 Relating to the Conservation and Management of Straddling Fish Stocks and Highly Migratory Fish Stocks and other applicable rules of international law. The guidelines are intended to provide general advice and a framework for development and implementation of national plans of action.

    Putting into practice the ecosystem approach to fisheries (arabic version) 2005
    Although the principles of an ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF) are not new, there is very little practical experience in their implementation. Translating high-level policy goals on EAF into operational objectives and actions is now the key challenge to sustainable fisheries. This booklet will provide an overview of EAF, for marine capture fisheries, and its benefits; consider what is required to implement EAF; consider the range of management measures available; provide an overview of the management process; outline any outstanding research requirements; and list the main threats to the implementation of EAF.

    Dams, fish and fisheries (chinese version)
    Also available in:

    The four papers presented in this publication address major fishery issues in relation to dams as identified by the World Commission on dams (WCD) and FAO for the purpose of WCD? global reviews on ?ams and Development? Characteristics of river and reservoir fisheries in various regions of the world are reviewed. Production figures for reservoirs in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as for the Commonwealth of Independent States, are mentioned . Also fish production figures fo r large rivers are provided, emphasizing the importance of floodplains for fish production. A non-exhaustive review of the current status of the use of fish facilities at dams throughout the world is presented, with the main target species considered from North America, Europe, Latin America, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Asia. Fisheries management capacity and information base requirements are reviewed for the six phases of the dam project cycle, i.e. dam identification, dam design, dam project appraisal, dam construction, dam operation and dam decommissioning. Effective environmental assessment and management coupled with improvements in design of civil engineering structures has made some recent dam projects more fish friendly and environmentally acceptable. The need for drafting legal instruments, which will facilitate modification of dam structures to incorporate mitigation measures and help altering dam operation rules to be more beneficial to fish biodiversity and fi sheries, is emphasized.
