FAO International Symposium on Fisheries Sustainability, 18-21 November

2019 Rome, Italy

highlighted a wide range of topics including Fisheries Innovation, Blue Fashion to promote sustainability and the healthy oceans. The use of fish skin for medicinal purpose and fashion stuffs like scurf, purse

etc. and the use of ocean materials for sustainable packaging

was really encouraging. Application of drone technology

for monitoring the health of the ocean and the legal harvest was truly promising.

The symposium ended up with the hope of developing international policy guidelines, equitable use of emerging technologies and ensuring FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) principles by the FAO.

INFOFISH as an Inter-governmental Organization participated in the symposium to gather knowledge on the present status of global fisheries, industry challenges to achieve the SDGs and expects that the gathered knowledge will be shared among the member states to take appropriate steps for ensuring the sustainable fisheries management.
