    Forty participants from the Islamic Republic of Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates participated in the RECOFI Data Workshop Series: Minimum Data Reporting (MDR) regional database, RECOFI-FIRMS stocks and fisheries inventories and SDG Indicator 14.4.1: Proportion of fish stocks within biologically sustainable levels. The workshop reviewed the MDR indicators and priority species list for endorsement, reviewed the presentation of pilot MDR RECOFI regional database and adopted an MDR data submission template. With regards to the RECOFI – FIRMS stocks and fisheries inventories, the workshop acknowledged the progress made so far and recommended that the Member Countries finalize and publish the RECOFI Fisheries inventory. The workshop also recognized the importance of publishing the work on the priority species presented at each meeting of the WGFM under the RECOFI - FIRMS collection as marine resource fact sheets. The workshop discussed the focal points list for MDR/FIRMS that will be circulated to Member Countries for finalisation and further discussed at the next meeting of the WGFM and approved at the next session of RECOFI. On SDG 14.4.1, the workshop agreed that the SDG 14.4.1 focal point list would be verified and validated and RECOFI Members’ reference list of stocks would be confirmed as either shared, transboundary and national, and communicate any issues with the outcomes.

    Report of the Twelfth Meeting of the Regional Commission for Fisheries (RECOFI) Working Group on Fisheries Management
    Virtual meeting, 4-5 October 2021

    The twelfth meeting of the Regional Commission for Fisheries (RECOFI) Working Group on Fisheries Management (WGFM) was held virtually, from 4 to 5 October 2021. The meeting was convened by RECOFI and FAO and attended by 36 participants from the following seven RECOFI member countries: Iraq, Iran (Islamic Republic of), Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates in addition to the FAO Secretariat. Bahrain did not attend. The meeting agreed with the recommendations from the workshop on Minimum Data Reporting (MDR) in July and noted that in terms of reviewing and reassessing the current MDR indicators, information could be collected using the previously noted tables on current work on RECOFI priority species, in particular the information regarding management measures and targeted fisheries. The WGFM noted the importance of having a variety of expertise providing input to FIRMS; it was acknowledged that while the Focal Point may not be an expert in all areas, they should consult with colleagues with relevant expertise as needed. Additionally, the meeting recognized it could be useful for the Focal Point and Alternate Focal Point to have complementary expertise to facilitate all the needed information. The meeting noted the challenge of reporting a stock as national or shared, due to it not being known definitively for each species. This has resulted in some inconsistencies in reporting across RECOFI countries on both RECOFI Priority Species as well as other species commonly reported by RECOFI member countries on the SDG 14.4.1 questionnaire. The meeting noted that RECOFI could play a role by working with member countries to jointly develop and complete a table on certain stocks which would assist member Countries in filling out the SDG 14.4.1 questionnaire. The WGFM is proposing a template which, once adopted by the Commission, will be used by the Secretariat to fill out according to the data already submitted by four RECOFI Countries which submitted their SDG14.4.1 questionnaire as part of the first inquiry launched by FAO in November 2019. The completed table would then be recirculated to RECOFI member countries in the endeavour to facilitate consistency in reporting when completing future versions of the SDG 14.4.1 Questionnaire. Countries which have not yet reported on the SDG14.4.1 questionnaire will be invited to provide inputs to that table. The WGFM acknowledged the recommendations of the workshop and reaffirmed the request to receive the SDG 14.4.1 questionnaire in Arabic.
