Call for contributions to FAO overview of COPs/BMPs in aquaculture
The FAO Aquaculture Service of the Fisheries and Aquaculture Department in Rome calls for contributions to the development of a worldwide overview and databank of Codes of Practice, Codes of Conduct, Best (Better) Management Practices, Technical Guidelines, etc. in aquaculture.
We would like to invite all those interested in the promotion of sustainable aquaculture development to advise FAO of the existence of COP/BMP documents in their countries or regions. In particular, all aquaculture producer associations and farmer organizations are encouraged to send to FAO their Codes of Practice, Codes of Conduct, Best (Better) Management Practices, Technical Guidelines, etc. COPs/BMPs in aquaculture, as available with national and international organizations, would also be important and should also be contributed. These documents could be sent to FAO in hard copy format or electronic format, or, if available online, by informing FAO of the relevant website, internet link or URL. For further information on the scope of this initiative, please see further below Background and Scope.
Your collaboration and contributions to this initiative will be most appreciated, and your participation will be duly recognized and acknowledged.
