    The report provides a summary of the proceedings of the Fourth Meeting of the WECAFC Ad Hoc Shrimp and Groundfish Working Group on the Guianas-Brazil Continental Shelf and CFRAMP Shrimp and Groundfish Subproject Specification Workshop. It contains summaries of the national reports and technical papers presented during the meeting. A Supplement to this report will reproduce the papers presented at the Meeting. The major topics discussed included priority areas for a co-operative investigation programme and proposals for CFRAMP sponsored stock assessment and data collection activities. The main recommendations and priority areas for collaboration approved by the Meeting are included in the report. The Workshop agreed that enough data and information exist to do a preliminary stock assessment of the shrimp resources of the region and recommended that the next meeting of the Working Group should attempt this task. Bio-economic analysis of the available fisheries data in the countries was considered priority, through which optimal data requirements for the countries could be identified and alternative management strategies evaluated.

    The Third Meeting of the Working Group on Shrimp and Groundfish of the Northern Brazil-Guianas Shelf was held in Paramaribo, Suriname, 26–27 November 2019. The meeting brought together 25 participants including Working Group members, fisheries officers, fisherfolk representatives, academia, government organizations and FAO. The scope of the Working Group is to provide scientific and management advice for the sustainable management of the shrimp and groundfish resources of the Northern Brazil-Guianas shelf in the WECAFC Region. The member countries representatives also presented an update on the status and development of their national fisheries management plans, followed by a discussion about the current status and necessary steps to develop a sub-regional EAF management plan for shrimp and groundfish. Additionally, advances in a gender analysis along the small scale fisheries value chain in Guyana, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago was presented, as well as an update regarding progress with the development of the subregional Monitoring and Evaluation Framework and Indicators to inform policy making on governance effectiveness. Working Group participants reviewed and discussed the draft regional strategy for bycatch management in the WECAFC Area developed by the REBYC II LAC project. They also discussed the needs and priorities to combat IUU fishing in the Northern Brazil-Guianas-shelf, as well as the need to enhance capacity in stock assessment techniques in the sub-region. A work plan for the intersessional period was agreed upon by the participants. Finally, based on Working Group discussions and the requirements for sustainable management of the shrimp and groundfish resources of the Northern Brazil-Guianas Shelf, a draft recommendation was prepared for consideration by the upcoming 18th session of WECAFC.
