    The sixth session of the Fisheries and Resources Monitoring System (FIRMS) Technical Working Group (TWG6) jointly with the third External Advisory Board (EAB) Technical Working Group (TWG3) of the BlueBRIDGE European-funded project offered the opportunity to present and discuss the on-going and the future activities of the Global Record of Stocks and Fisheries (GRSF) among FIRMS, BlueBRIDGE and External Advisory Board partners. GRSF was created as a Virtual Research Environment (VRE) during the BlueBRIDGE project to offer: 1) increased dissemination and monitoring of stocks and fisheries information, including in support to the Sustainable Development Goal Indicator 14.4.1“Proportion of fish stocks within biologically sustainable levels” of 2030 UN Agenda for Sustainable Development (A/RES/71/313), 2) support to traceability needs including catch documentation schemes, ecolabelling schemes, food safety, and sustainable fisheries. A business plan is being elaborated to ensure its long-term exploitation and development. The basis of this business plan is a proposal by FIRMS during its 10th FIRMS Steering Committee (FSC10) to take over the ownership of the GRSF VRE for its sustainable maintenance and development, however with some concerns.

    The workshop’s objectives were to revise and validate national inventories of fisheries, building capacity and appraisal on how such inventory approach can contribute to national fisheries monitoring goals and regional information sharing in support to fishery management, and develop regional collaboration towards functional data workflow. The workshop results will be conveyed to the WECAF Commission meeting in March 2010. This workshop, involving officers from national, sub-regional and region al organizations in the Western Central Atlantic region was the fourth of this kind in the FIRMS initiative. It came after the ones held in CECAF, RECOFI and SWIOFC areas, and confirmed the heterogeneity of the regions and the need of adapting such experiences to the nature of the places and the political and geographical realities. It was held back-to-back with the WECAFC SAG-VI and the GCFI meetings to minimize costs and optimize the participation of the experts. Participants were fisheries ex perts from Anguilla, Barbados (CERMES), El Salvador, France (Guyana and Martinique), Trinidad and Tobago, the United States of America, CRFM, CLME Project, GCFI, CFMC, SICA/OSPESCA, CNFO-CU, the FIRMS’ Secretariat, the WECAFC Secretariat, and two FAO-HQs technical support staff.
