    The workshop examined past efforts to develop a regional cooperation mechanism for aquaculture development in the region, the main objective of the meeting being to reactivate an aquaculture cooperation network in the Americas. After agreeing that the network should be an intergovernmental entity, the countries elected Brazil as its initial host, with the mandate to conduct the elaboration of the network statutes and a plan of action for the short and medium terms and with the support of an exec utive secretary. It was established that once the statutes were agreed the network would be formalized with signature of the ministers or their representatives. The delegates of the participating countries subscribed a letter of intent, which ratifies their interest and commitment to establish an intergovernmental cooperation network for aquaculture, open to all the countries of the Americas. The agenda and list of participants are included in the report as Appendixes A and B respectively while Appendix C contains the letter of intention, Letter of Guayaquil.

    The Latin America and Caribbean Regional Consultative Meeting was one of three regional consultative workshops carried out as a follow-up to the 2009 inception workshop of the FAO Extrabudgetary Programme on Fisheries and Aquaculture for Poverty Alleviation and Food Security. The workshops built on the outcomes of the Global Conference on Small-scale Fisheries held in Bangkok in October 2008 and referred to the recommendations made by the 26th Session of the FAO Committee on Fisheries (COFI) in March 2009 with regard to the potential development of an international instrument and programme for Small-scale fisheries. The purpose of the workshops was to provide guidance on the scope and contents of such an international small-scale fisheries instrument and on the possible priorities and implementation modalities for a global assistance programme. It was organized around plenary presentations on key subjects and working group discussions. The workshop agreed that an international instrum ent on small-scale fisheries and a related programme would be important tools for securing sustainable small-scale fisheries. It recommended that a small-scale fisheries international instrument and assistance programme should be informed by human rights principles and existing instruments relevant to good governance and sustainable development, comprise the ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF) as a guiding principle for resource management and development, and incorporate Disaster Risk Managem ent (DRM) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) as an integral part considering that DRM is a continuum process, before, during and after a disaster. The instrument should draw upon the available experiences with good governance practices in small-scale fisheries at national, regional and global levels and strengthen mechanisms for information sharing and communication, including by regional and subregional organizations and by associations and networks of fishworkers organizations, both of men an d women, and civil society organizations (CSO). The instrument should draw on the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, as well as the international voluntary guidelines that are being developed under the auspices of FAO on land tenure and natural resources. It was recognized that there was a continuing need to promote the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries in small-scale fisheries.

    Síntesis regional del desarrollo de la acuicultura, 1. América Latina y el Caribe - 2005/ Regional review on aquaculture development, 1. Latin America and the Caribbean - 2005 2006

    The FAO Fisheries Department conducts reviews of aquaculture development status and trends on a regular basis. This document is a result of such an exercise conducted during 2005 and 2006. The regional review is a synthesis of the National Aquaculture Sector Overview (NASO) of 22 countries from Latin America and the Caribbean. The production volume and value data have been derived from the latest FAO FISHSTAT Plus database for 2003. As part of the review process, a regional expert workshop was c onducted in Panama, Republic of Panama, in 2005, to discuss the regional aquaculture development status and trends. The report of this expert workshop is also included in this review. The regional review provides a description of how the aquaculture sector developed in Latin America and the Caribbean over the past decade. The review and analysis of data and information clearly show that the sector is growing exponentially with salmon, shrimp and tilapia as the leading species. However, ac cording to data recorded by FAO it may be observed that during the last 10 years there are important increments in the production of other groups of species such as macroalgae, bivalves, caracids and catfish. Chile, Brazil, Mexico and Ecuador are the leading countries in terms of production for 2003. Most countries are showing a rapid growth of the sector thus having important social and economic effects on regional and local economies mostly through medium to larger scale commercial aquaculture . Rural aquaculture in Latin America is still largely dependent on State or international technical and financial support schemes. Overall, aquaculture in this region continues to grow steadily but will need greater organization and coordination between the private sector and government particularly to achieve larger social effects.
