    The Symposium on Interactions between Social, Economic and Ecological Objectives of Inland Commercial and Recreational Fisheries and Aquaculture, was organized in conjunction with the twenty-fifth session of the European Inland Fisheries Advisory Commission (EIFAC) in Antalya, Turkey, from 21 to 24 May 2008. The symposium was attended by 255 participants from 26 countries. The symposium programme comprised 57 oral presentations and 24 posters. The symposium made considerable progress t owards understanding the interactions between ecological/environmental and socio-economic/governance objectives for fisheries and aquaculture. There was a broad recognition that inland fisheries and aquaculture need to shift from a sectoral view where they are treated in isolation to an integrated, multidisciplinary systems view. The symposium provided a number of clear and comprehensive conclusions and recommendations to the twenty-fifth session of EIFAC for follow-up by the appropria te responsible bodies.

    The symposium on Interactions between Social, Economic and Ecological Objectives of Inland Commercial and Recreational Fisheries and Aquaculture, was organized in conjunction with the Twenty-Fifth Session of the European Inland Fisheries Advisory Commission (EIFAC) in Antalya, Turkey, from 21 to 24 May 2008. The symposium objectives were: 1) To review the wide range of socio-economic and ecological interactions between fi sheries and aquaculture and the roles of various stakeholders with respect to these interactions. 2) To identify where future research should focus and propose measures to decrease interactions that compromise sustainable development and management, and promote interactions that contribute to sustainability. 3) To provide information to policy and decision makers to contribute to the general awareness of trends in socio-economic and ecological interactions within and between the sector and other rural sectors. 4) To facilitate dialogue betwee n scientists, researchers, fi sherfolk, aquaculturists and policy and decision makers on the motives, interactions and interests of stakeholders. 5) To advise EIFAC on appropriate management and development measures and tools for inland fi sheries and aquaculture in Europe. This Occasional Paper, in conjunction with a special issue of Fisheries Management and Ecology, represents the proceedings of the symposium. The Report of the symposium was published in 2008 as EIFAC FAO Fisheries and Aqauculture Report No. 871. The symposium made considerable progress towards understanding the interactions between ecological/environmental and socio-economic/governance objectives for fi sheries and aquaculture. There was a broad recognition that inland fi sheries and aquaculture need to shift from a sectoral view where they are treated in isolation to an integrated, multi-disciplinary systems view.

    Fishery performance indicator studies for the commercial and recreational pelagic fleets of the Dominican Republic and Grenada 2018

    Fishery Performance Indicators (FPIs) were developed to address gaps in data and information on fisheries worldwide and in recognition that to be successful with fisheries investment, development or conservation projects measurable outcomes are needed. The focus of the tool and its indicators is to evaluate the effectiveness of management systems in aligning ecosystem health and human well-being. The Ocean Partnership Program (OPP) belonging to the Areas Beyond National Jurisdictions (ABNJ) program funded by the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) and the World Bank, supported the Caribbean Billfish Project and its development of billfish fisheries management and conservation business cases in the Caribbean. The Western Central Atlantic Fishery Commission (WECAFC), Conservation International and the fisheries authorities in the Dominican Republic and Grenada teamed-up to develop business cases at national level. The FPIs studies in both countries were conducted on the commercial and recreational pelagic fisheries. For Grenada, the commercial pelagic longline fishery, the commercial fish aggregating device (FAD) fishery and recreational fishery for billfish and other pelagics were assessed. For the Dominican Republic, the pelagic FAD fishery and the recreational billfish fishery were assessed. This circular details the information discovered during the FPI field work and discusses the resulting FPI scores. The information collected and analysed is used for the development of the business cases in both countries.
