Research Coordinator for Oceanography and Resources
In various Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs) established
under multilateral treaties, we actively make the following three important
and significant contributions: (1) To implement smooth and fair discussion
in various Working groups, Scientific committees and annual Commission
meetings, in order to promote "Sustainable use of resources, management of
the optimal level of fishing capacity and conservation of the marine
ecosystem": (2) To facilitate adoption of optimal and agreeable decisions on
various issues in these meetings, especially in the tuna RFMOs (WCPFC, IOTC
and ICCAT) and the demersal fish RFMOs (NAFO and SEAFO): and (3) To
strengthen relevant international cooperation in these RFMOs.
