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.
