    No results found.

    This document is the final report of an environmental assessment in the Bay of Bengal carried out between April 1991 and February 1993, with special reference to fisheries. It includes edited versions of the status reports from every member country of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP). They were presented at the regional workshop held in Colombo, February 2-6, 1993 at the conclusion of the assessment. The country reports and the state reports from India were prepared by representatives of each country/state. Figure and data in these status reports are sometimes difficult to compare due to different methods of analysis, insufficient information sampling etc. The assessment was funded by the Swedish International Development Authority (SIDA), and executed by the Swedish Centre for Coastal Development and Management of Aquatic Resources (SWEDMAR), a unit within the National Swedish Board of Fisheries, and carried out under the umbrella of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP). The objective was to assess the problems of environmental degradation in the coastal ecosystems in the Bay of Bengal by reviewing the existing information, analyzing available data and collating it all as a fundamental information base. In the long-term, the project could result in recommendations for coordinated activities in the countries as well as the region to achieve sustainable productivity from the coastal ecosystems and reduce the negative effects on the fisheries resources.

    For bibliographic purposes, this document should be cited as Yadava, YS (ed), Report of the National Workshop on the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, 29-30 September, 2000, Chennai, India, BOBP Report No. 90. Pages 166. The Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries is one of the most important international instruments devised for wholesale management of the living aquatic resources of our planet. The Code is an outcome of several contemporary global initiatives, which expressed c oncern about the overexploitation of important fish stocks, damage to the ecosystems, economic losses, and issues affecting the fish trade. As a first step toward promoting implementation of the Code ofConduct for Responsible Fisheries in India, a National Workshop for coastal States and Union Territories was organized by the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP) in association with the Government of India at Chennai during 29-30 September 2000. The objectives of the Workshop were to fully familia rise government functionaries with the elements of the Code and the technical guidelines that have been prepared by FAO to assist member-countries in implementing the Code. The National Workshop brought together senior fisheries administrators working with the Union Ministry of Agriculture and the State and Union Territory Governments, scientists and experts from fisheries institutions, and representatives from national and international NGOs. The Workshop, saw an enthusiastic participation by 43 de’egates and incidentally, it was the first occasion when senior fisheries administrators from the Union and the coastal States and Union Territories had assembled to discuss the Code and arrive at an implementable plan of action. For many of the participants, the Workshop also marked the first systematic exposure to the Code of Conduct.
