Need

There would be many advantages in having the fishing industry collect some of the basic data needed for stock assessment and environmental monitoring. The need is to develop a program for this to occur in an efficient, effective and accountable manner. The first need is to bring together key stakeholders who would need to be involved if such a program were to be developed. The stakeholders would include fishing industry associations, fisheries scientists (government and non-government), fisheries training agencies, resource and environmental management agencies and groups like Ocean Watch.

Objectives

1. To discuss and scope ideas for developing industry capability for scientific data collection
2. To develop a full proposal for submission to FRDC in December 1999.
