The Resolution on the Future of SEAFDEC Review of Works and Countries' Directives in Relation to Marine Capture Fisheries
Since its establishment in 1967, SEAFDEC’s direction has been changed from improvement of technologies including capture fishery, aquaculture and post harvest technology for enhancing the fishery production to the promotion of responsible fisheries of the Southeast Asian region in 1990s taking into accounts to the requirements of the international fisheries-related issues continue to emerge, as well as fisheries policy issues and trade barriers, threatening the sustainability of the fisheries and aquaculture sectors in the Southeast Asian region. In 2017, as SEAFDEC was entered the threshold of its Fiftieth Anniversary and taking the opportunity of the occasion as a platform to guide SEAFDEC towards its future direction, the SEAFDEC Program Committee during its Thirty-ninth Meeting in 2016 suggested that a Special SEAFDEC Council Meeting should be organized with the objective of setting the future direction of SEAFDEC beyond its Fiftieth year. The Resolution on the Future of SEAFDEC was therefore developed taking into accounts the prioritized issues for future regional program formulation adopted during the Forty-sixth Meeting of the SEAFDEC Council in 2014, and the recommendations/suggestions by SEAFDEC Member Countries. The Resolution on the Future of SEAFDEC: Vision, Mission, and Strategies Towards 2030 was adopted during the Special SEAFDEC Council Meeting in Bangkok, Thailand on 15 November 2017 which organized in conjunction with the Fiftieth Anniversary of SEAFDEC.
