PROTECTING THE BLUE GOLD

FISH-i Africa at COFI & OUR OCEAN 2014

Stop Illegal Fishing (SIF) has had a busy month with their flagship initiative FISH-i Africa being presented in two major international forums, the 31st Session of the UN Committee on Fisheries (COFI) which ran from the 9th to the 13th of June in Rome, Italy, and the "Our Ocean" Conference held on the 16th and 17th of June in Washington, USA.

COFI is the only global intergovernmental forum where major international fisheries and aquaculture issues are examined and recommendations made to governments, regional fishery bodies, NGOs, fish workers, the FAO and the international community as a whole. COFI is also where global agreements and non‐binding instruments are negotiated. Members of theSIFnetwork were once again in attendance at COFI supporting the African FAO Member countries!
