FAO International Symposium on Fisheries Sustainability: Strengthening the Science-Policy Nexus

FAO International Symposium on Fisheries Sustainability: Strengthening the Science-Policy Nexus

19-21 November 2019

Marine and inland fisheries today are an important crossroads. They make a crucial and growing contribution to food, nutrition and livelihood security. Yet, despite significant successes, there is a decreasing overall trend in the proportion of marine fish stocks caught within biologically sustainable levels, especially in the least developed regions.

The fisheries sector needs to develop a new vision for capture fisheries in the 21st century, in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, that better reflects the way we perceive and use capture fisheries.

General Climate Indicators within the NAFO Convention Area: NAO, SST, Air Temperature, and Ice cover

Oceanographic conditions in NAFO waters are to a large degree determined by the strength of the winter atmospheric circulation over the Northwest Atlantic, measured by the NAO Index.
The North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) index as defined by Rogers (1984) is the difference in winter (December, January and February) sea level atmospheric pressures between the Azores and Iceland.
