The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) organized the FishPath Network Workshop 2023, which was held in Portland, Maine, US. This workshop is the second meeting of the members of the FishPath Network, designed to build capacity for the use of the FishPath tool and process.
This workshop was a combination of training sessions from TNC’s FishPath core team and knowledge sharing among members of the FishPath Network that will better prepare participants to use FishPath.
Dr. Carlos Montenegro Silva, IFOP Fisheries Research Division head , who is also part of the FishPath FishPath advisory group, participated in this workshop.
According to Dr. Montenegro, “the workshop held in Portland was a great success, since it managed to bring together scientists and fisheries managers from different parts of the world, who were able to share their experiences in the use of the FishPath tool. It is evident that FishPath tool, process and network are a tremendous opportunity for countries with different levels of management capacity, fisheries administration, data collection and modeling of socio-ecological systems associated with fisheries, to move towards understanding, research and management of fishing resources with a precautionary, ecosystemic and sustainable approach”.
With the purpose that the world’s fisheries are managed in a way that results in the conservation and good use of natural resources, while maintaining the supply of fishery products in a sustainable way and where local communities participate in decisions of management and conservation. To achieve this vision and overcome the challenges that fisheries face, FishPath was developed, a process that helps fisheries move along the path to sustainability. FishPath was initiated by a working group of experts under the Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) and subsequently refined and expanded by The Nature Conservancy, together with NOAA in the United States and the Commonwealth of Scientific and Industrial Research Organization of Australia (CSIRO).
