ACAP starts its 2019 round of meetings in Brazil with a Tuna RFMO Strategy Workshop

ACAP's Tuna RFMO Strategy Workshop wrapped up a successful first day of two weeks of the Agreement's 2019 meetings in Floreanopolis, Brazil on Sunday.   Monday 6th commences with the three-day Ninth Meeting of the Agreement's Seabird Bycatch Working Group (SBWG) when the strategy workshop will report on its conclusions.  The workshop's objectives as set out in the preparatory document were to identify the most effective and efficient ways to engage with tuna Regional Fisheries Management Organisations (tRFMOs) to deliver on ACAP conservation objectives over the period 2019 to 2022 (click here).
