Issue 19 of the Regional Fishery Body Secretariats Network Magazine has been released. This issue of the publication focuses on the importance of Regional Fishery Bodies (RFB) and the challenges faced by the Secretariats.
"Regional fishery bodies (RFBs) are a key mechanism to promote regional cooperation planned for by UNCLOS, as they aim to the long-term sustainability of shared fisheries stocks and the pursue of SDG 14. Therefore, it is not only an effective tool to target ocean sustainability but also, and more importantly, it is a political instrument at the service of common regional interests"
