The FAO Code of Conduct
  • Adopted in 1995
  • Voluntary policy framework
  • Promote sustainable and responsible fisheries and
    aquaculture worldwide
  • 12 Articles
  • Article 12 Fisheries Research
  • Focus of FAO Fisheries Department

COFI identified constraints on information
  • Level of Scientific Research
  • Amount of Information
  • Institutional Capacity
  • Access to Information

5
Information supporting the Code
  • Breadth of information
  • Depth of information
  • Scale of information
  • Science management

  • Local Issues
  • Enhancing expertise with information
  • Sustaining access to information
  • Increasing access to information on Malawi
    fisheries aquaculture
  • Local Opportunities
  • Networking
  • Promote standard methodologies
  • Digital Information

13
Code Opportunities
  • Local information
  • Access to it
  • Validation of it
  • Breadth of information
  • Collecting across disciplines
  • Collecting across time
  • Science management
  • Using the best available
  • Making choices

14
Collaboration Opportunities
  • Local and National
  • Regional
  • International

15
Collaboration at local and national level
  • Livelihoods and management start here
  • Access to local and national fisheries
    information is the most important.
  • Access to the breadth of related information is
    also most important at national level.
  • Compatibility with national information systems
    and standards is essential. 

16
Collaboration at regional level
  • Fisheries resources are regional
  • Access to the breadth and depth of fisheries
    information at regional level is essential.
  • Opportunities for sharing fisheries information
    at regional level are greater.

17
International collaboration
  • Fisheries resources, agreements, legislation,
  • management bodies, trade,
  • ecosystems are international
  • FAOs role - information activities
  • Code of Conduct
  • AGORA Access to Global Online Research in
    Agriculture. gt500 journals. 295 institutions in
    51 countries registered.
  • ASFA partnership and project to make the database
    available in LIFDC countries. (currently 49
    recipients)

18
  • Information standards
  • have to be international
  • if we want to share within the 'aquatic
    community'
  • IAMSLICs role
  • expand coverage of the Distributed Library
  • promote building institutional and regional
    repositories
  • implement a OAI harvester
  • adopting basic digital library guidelines
  • continue to support local initiatives with small
    grants
