    This document is the edited version of the report adopted by the Thirty-seventh Session of the Asia-Pacific Fishery Commission (APFIC) convened in Qingdao, China from 13 to 15 June 2023 in hybrid format and hosted by the Chinese Bureau of Fisheries, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs. The Commission endorsed the report of the Seventy-eighth APFIC Executive Committee Meeting, reviewed the intersessional activities of APFIC and of FAO workshops, as well as the report and recommendations of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Future of APFIC. It was informed of current limitations to the effective function of APFIC. The Commission adopted by consensus the “Resolution for suspension of the activities of the Commission”, i.e. to suspend the activities of the Commission for a period of five years. Following the period of suspension, the procedure for convening a special session will apply. As the Thirty-eighth Session and the Seventy-ninth Executive Committee Meeting have not been scheduled, there was no requirement for a biennial APFIC workplan or budget. This matter will be reopened at the special session should the Commission wish to resume activity and convene the Thirty-eighth Session. The officers of the Commission remain unchanged and will remain incumbent should the special session be convened in 2028 (Chairperson: China; Vice-chairperson: Thailand; Executive Committee: India, Malaysia, the Philippines).
