    The objectives of the workshop were to examine the implications of national and joint management of shared stocks, to explore possible ways to achieve sustainable management of shared stocks for the benefit of coastal countries and to suggest the way forward for a regional management system. As a general recommendation the group suggests to support the current FAO Working Group on the Assessment of Small Pelagics in Northwest Africa. This group should be furthered and strengthened in order to maintain a high level of resource assessment studies in the coming years and the long-term future. Fisheries Scientific Institutes should identify research priorities and seek national budgetary allocationsto sustain long-term research. Countries should develop national management plans in support of a future joint regional management system.

    Science and Management of Small Pelagics. Symposium on Science and the Challenge of Managing Small Pelagic Fisheries on Shared Stocks in Northwest Africa, 11 -14 March 2008, Casablanca, Morocco / Science et aménagement des petits pélagiques.

    The Symposium “Science and the Challenge of Managing Small Pelagic Fisheries on Shared Stocks in Northwest Africa” took place in Casablanca, Morocco, from 11 to 14 March 2008. It was attended by around 100 participants. Forty-three oral presentations and 30 posters were presented. The Symposium was split into four main sessions: resources and exploitation–biology and ecology of main resources and status of fisheries; dynamics and variability of pelagic fish populations and environmenta l influences; methods and models for assessing small pelagic fish stocks; and management of fisheries on shared resources. The Symposium ended with a general discussion aiming to identify specific problems to address as well as providing recommendations on ways forward. These Proceedings present a summary of the various sessions as well as on the outcomes of the discussion. They also provide scientifically reviewed papers and many of the papers in support of posters presented at the Symposium (non-scientifically reviewed). The papers and posters are available at www.smallpelagics2008.org.

    A permanent FAO working group, composed of scientists from the coastal states and from countries or organizations that play an active role in northwest African pelagic fisheries, was established in March 2001. The main objective of the working group is to propose options for stock management and exploitation of their fisheries and provide catch advice for each year, as well as to improve the assessment of the small pelagic resources for the economic benefit of Morocco, Mauritania, the Gambia and Senegal and ensure optimal sustainability of the resources. The meeting was held in Agadir, Morocco, from 31 March to 10 April 2003. A total of 19 scientists from eight countries and FAO participated. As a precautionary approach, the working group recommended that the catch levels of small pelagics should not exceed the average recorded during the last five years. For sardinella, it recommended that the combined catch of both species in 2004 should not exceed the mean le vel of the preceding three years, i.e. 420 000 tonnes.
