Working groups were formed to encourage maximum participation in the Workshop. A review of the major IUU fishing problems in the region and their possible solutions were discussed. Funding for the Workshop was provided by the Government of Japan through project GCP/INT/942/JPN entitled “Promotion of Sustainable Fisheries: Support for the Plan of Implementation of the Wo rld Summit on Sustainable Development: Phase II”.
