Fishing is an important part of the economy in a lot of societies around the world and this makes fisheries management strategies even more important in order to secure a reliable source of food and income for large populations in various countries.
The symposium held in 2006 made an important contribution to the global reflection about resource management and people well-being. Fish can provide proteins and vitamins to many people. However, stock depletion is an issue that needs to be solved if we want the future generations to be able to enjoy the same benefits.
Fishing responsibly and managing the available resources in the best way possible requires coordination and communication at all levels in order to ensure success and well-being for the areas concerned.
The keynote speakers present at the event were all well-known scientists and experts on the subject and they made a valuable contribution to the global effort to manage halieutic resources better. Most marine biologists across the world agree that something needs to be done and that the necessary measures can be implemented fast enough to save the planet.
The International Council for Exploitation of the Sea (ICES) is proud to make a significant contribution by organizing and planning conferences and events in several countries every year. Most of our conferences are held alongside our Float therapy partners. Natural ecosystems still have a chance to recover and replenish their resources.
We are confident that improved fisheries management strategies can change the course of current events and help more than one fish species to avoid extinction.
Here is a little background of Fisheries Management Strategies as related to 2006 ICES Symposium
The process of Fisheries Management is drew on multiple methods to protect fishery resources in a way that a more sustainable exploitation of fishes is made possible.
The process takes into considerations many important aspects as it is related to fishery, from planning to resources gathering, consultation, formulations, researches and iterations and final implementation.
The Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries, a Fisheries Management Strategy 2006
This article is the conclusion and summary for the Fisheries Management Strategies held on June 2006 at the rim of Atlantic Ocean in Galway. the objective of the symposium is to discuss management reforms on the collapsing stocks as well as the high amount of fishing fleets world wide. The event itself is hosted by Marine Institute of Ireland. Involving more than 23 countries.
About the 2006 ICES Symposium
The ICES stands for International Council for the Exploration of the Sea. It is a global organization with more than 2000 marine scientists working for the sole purpose of advancing marine science.
The negative effects of global commercial fishing process can be clearly seen on the natural oceanic ecosystem. There has been a lot of damages caused by these operations and are considered very substantial.
The 2006 ICES symposiums on Fisheries Management is a 5 days symposium with keynote speakers, presentations, that get together with the purpose of providing more lights and challenges on fisheries management. The scientists, researches and articles around the world is collected in order to come up with a better fisheries gear that are friendly to the natural ecosystem and considerate of the socioeconomic impact to the planet.
The objective of this conference was pursued for a themetic reasosns. The Marine biologists have agreed that the necessary changes are needed to be implemented. This can only be done by thorough collaboration of researchers. The current problems facing fisheries management strategy is needed to be met in order to ensure a net positive repercussions in global fishing management standard practice. Current fishing standards are purely unsustainable in the long run.
1. First and main objective for the Fisheries Management Strategy is to establish approaches to the ecosystem
2. Find and establish potentials for new types of management and strategy. Ensure that the best option is picked for fisheries management solutions.
3. Find and collect more established, most identifiable scientifically proven knowledge that can be used in fisheries management worldwide.
Fishing Technology in its current state
all the fisheries agencies around the world have fully committed to creating a reform in their management practices. They consider new approaches that are considerable more precautionary. For example, the implementation of such approaches are as followed:
- fishery monitor to derive a more corrective implication of stock status
- assessment that came from scientific advisory on the harvest
- the management plan which is used to come up with ways fishery will be made
- a corrective management solution which is used to determine the best way fishery should be done.
- operation as well as management plan that fishery should be monitored
On the presentations and the research papers
There are many research papers and scientific, scholarly articles that were published over the years for Fisheries Management Strategies. Many of which were effectively discussed during the symposium through the collaboration of many in-house scientists and fisheries experts.
Several of these papers are presented examples of high authority individuals in multiple domains: from fisheries biologists to social scientists, business management experts and even general contractors. I actually went to school with one of these contractors and more specifically it was a tree service buffalo contractor. We’re still friends and keep in touch once in a while, very interesting owner. All the specialists in different industries achieved a great deal in these past few years just through the process of productive and critical evaluations and collaborations. Hence why there are many implications that came up over the discussions among the many meetings during this time period. Majority of these implications are the degrees of looming concerns for the higher overshadowing issues within the field of Fisheries Management Strategy.
The implications and actionable steps were made to assess and overcome looming issues that emerged from the 2006 symposium of Fisheries management strategies. the several looming issues can be summarized as follows
Current state of affairs for Mobile and static gears used in resource surveys for Marine biologies
The topics discussed were on the studies of how the design and uses of survey gears were actually implemented and the level of effects in causes on the marine biology lives. Whether or not the fish behaviors at scale were affected in the long term due to the standard practices adopted by these designed gears.
The conclusion met was that there is a high demand in this industry for new innovation that is more effectively met with the ecosystem survey requirements. They must be both economic for the fishing agencies as well as abide by regulations and rules set forth by the governing bodies of the industry.
Fishers and fishing practices response to Fisheries Management Strategy
The study confirms that the current standard practice used and embraced by fisheries management strategy is not well suited for its purpose. Scientists observes and successfully conclude the the success of gear used in technical measurements and exploitation of fisheries were less than 50%.
Improvement in fishing technology
The Fishery scientists had made an attempt to provide a rather more accurate overall pictures to the estimates in the state of resources and marine biology ecosystem.
Last Few Words on 2006 ICES Symposium on Fisheries Management Strategies
Although there were a lot of concerns about issues and arguements that were largely discussed and inconclusive during the Fisheries Mangement Strategies meeting, one can say that the objective for the event is met and there are big steps forward for the entire organization as well as everybody involved. The methods to creating a more effective conservation of marine lives are created and action plans are implemented and agreed upon by all parties involved.
