    The Expert Meeting to Identify the Needs for a Subsidiary Body on the Technical and Socio-economic Aspects of Aquaculture in the Mediterranean was held in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, from 2 to 3 June 2006. It was attended by eight experts from the region. The meeting was organized as a result of a process, comprising an external evaluation of the Committee on Aquaculture (CAQ) and its Networks, in 2004, and the endorsement by the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) at it s thirtieth session (January 2006) of a meeting of experts to identify the needs for a GFCM subsidiary body of CAQ which would deal with the socio-economic and technical aspects of aquaculture in the Mediterranean. The experts defined the terms of reference, priorities and modus operandi of such a subsidiary body. They also requested the fifth session of CAQ a) to endorse the establishment of the Coordinating Steering Group on Technical, Economic and Social Aspects of Aquaculture in the Mediterr anean (TESAM) and the ad hoc working groups proposed, b) to present results to the Commission at its forthcoming session, c) to review and redefine the objectives and terms of reference of the GFCM CAQ in order to reflect more precisely the socio-economic and technical issues that CAQ should handle for the Commission, d) to explore the possibility of a merger of the Environment and Aquaculture in the Mediterranean Network (EAM) and TESAM, to ensure a lighter cost-effective and efficient structur e for CAQ subsidiary bodies, and e) to instruct the Information System for the Promotion of Aquaculture in the Mediterranean (SIPAM) to start collecting more socio-economic, technical and research-related data and information to facilitate the work of TESAM. The meeting of experts was informed of the findings and recommendations of the Workshop on European Seabass and Gilthead Seabream Markets, that was held in Rome on 12 May 2006. Many of the recommendations from the workshop were translated in to activities to be carried out by the ad hoc Working Group on Marketing as proposed by the Expert Meeting.

At its first session, held in Beijing, People's Republic of China, from 18 to 22 April 2002, the Sub-Committee recognized the important role that aquaculture cou ld play in improving livelihoods, generating income, and stimulating national and regional development, and identified a number of key priority areas for future work: It also acknowledged the current inadequacy of Regular Programme funds to carry out successfully the activities recommended during this session. It requested that the FAO Fisheries Department review its Medium-Term Plan for its compatibility with the recommendations made during this session, and develop new programme entities with budget requests, as appropriate, to accommodate these un-funded needs, for submission to the next COFI session. The Sub-Committee requested the FAO Fisheries Department to make a report on its efforts in this regard, and present this to the next session of the Sub-Committee.
