 Management Objectives Workshop

28-29 November, 2012

Manila, Philippines

Welcome to the WCPFC Management Objectives Workshop (MOW) web-page. The MOW terms of reference approved at WCPFC8 draw attention to WCPFC Convention text [docicon:213], including Articles 5, 6, 7, 10, and 30, and further recommends consideration of UNCLOS and UNFSA (e.g. Annex 2 Guidelines). In addition you may wish to review the Australian DAFF Commonwealth Fisheries Harvest Strategy, Policy and Guidelines.

Outcomes from the Management Objectives Workshop were detailed in the Report of the Management Objectives Workshop (posted below), and were accepted by WCPFC 9. Within the agreed roadmap for future actions, the expert group in consultation with relevant parties will finalise development of Management Objectives, Performance Indicators and Reference Points. The resulting strawman document will be reviewed by the WCPFC Science Committee (SC9 August 2013), refined and presented to the follow up workshop ‘Management Objectives Workshop 2' (MOW2). That Workshop will provide a further forum for feedback by Commission Members, subsidiary bodies and other stakeholders. MOW2 will then report to WCPFC 10 (December 2013), which it immediately precedes.
