9th SPC Heads of Fisheries MeetingMeeting
(Meeting: 6-12 March 2015) The Secretariat of the Pacific Community’s ninth Heads of Fisheries Meeting (HoF9) provides technical oversight of all SPC work in the field of fisheries and aquaculture, as well as an opportunity to discuss in detail topics of special interest. It covers both of SPC’s Fisheries Programmes: Oceanic and Coastal.
It will include a half-day session for the outcomes from a regional workshop on the “Future of coastal/inshore fisheries management” to be discussed (from a workshop conducted the previous week) and Meetings for the EU Funded ‘SciCOFish’ Project and country discussion in regard to the joint multi-agency fisheries concept note under EDF 11 funding to be led by the Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency, to be held in Noumea at the SPC Conference Centre from 6 to 12 March 2015.
The Heads of Fisheries meeting is intended to cover the entire range of work of national and territorial fisheries administrations. It may discuss issues outside the current range of the SPC work-programme, and this “big-picture” view of fisheries is essential for longer-term planning and is also of considerable assistance to other agencies, regional NGOs and donors interested in national as well as regional issues.
