Tele Aadsen's WHAT WATER HOLDS speaks to anyone who has fallen under the spell of the sea.Tele Aadsen met the sea as a child when her parents traded jobs as veterinarians for a migratory life shared with sea birds, salmon, and fishermen. In the mist of the Tongass rainforest, Tele learned to explore life within endless shades of gray, coming to know firsthand how fine the line between life and death and the precarious balance of sea, land, and sky. She's spent the four decades since trolling for salmon off Southeast Alaska. In WHAT WATER HOLDS, a series of lyrical essays first shared at Oregon's FisherPoets Gathering, Tele examines questions of equity, identity, community, the changing climate, and sustainability with loving, detailed attention, revealing the complexities within their many shades of gray. Weaving stories of what lies beneath the surface and the possibilities beyond, WHAT WATER HOLDS speaks to anyone who has fallen under the spell of the sea, struggled to find their own uncharted path, and wrestled with big philosophical questions--in short, anyone seeking to live a full, deeply considered life.

This paper is based on a study that identifies the major causes of detentions and rejections of fishery products in international trade and assesses the control procedures used by the main importing countries/regions of Canada, the EU, Japan and the USA. The final section makes recommendations on what needs to change to improve fish safety and quality controls. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
Country experiences on the compilation and use of data and information on shrimp culture
Collation and analysis of aquaculture statistics including indicators by FAO
Review and short-listing/prioritization of indicators and criteria
Discussion on ways and means of information acquisition and dissemination
Discussion of contents and format of annotated questionnaire addressed to governments.
The Bangkok FAO Technical Consultation on Policies for Sustainable Shrimp Culture recommended that FAO specifically request governments of countries engaged in shrimp culture to report on progress in implementing the code of conduct for responsible fisheries in relation to shrimp culture activities to the Committee on Fisheries (COFI) at its next and subsequent sessions. This publication contains the findings of the ad hoc expert meeting in pursuance of this recommendation. The meeting prioritized and prepared a recommended short-list of the criteria and indicators of sustainable shrimp fisheries which should form the basis for regular reporting by countries to COFI. The meeting stressed that these criteria and indicators related to the national level and did not encompass farm-level and local-level indicators. It noted that the regular collation of these indicators would greatly benefit the planning and management of shrimp culture development in the countries. The meeting concluded that it would be premature at this stage to request governments to report actual data on those indicators to the next session of COFI, in February 1999. Instead, the meeting elaborated a questionnaire to allow governments to review and comment on the recommended indicators and on their present and future ability to acquire the related data and information. Moreover, the meeting decided that in this questionnaire, governments should be given the opportunity to indicate the nature of assistance deemed desirable to adopt a comprehensive statistical system for their shrimp culture sub-sectors in view of the inadequacies of many existing systems and the high socio-economic importance and specific management and development requirements of shrimp culture.--Publisher's description.

The meeting was attended by six experts from the Committee on Aquaculture (CAQ) and by the consultant recruited for undertaking the evaluation. Initially only an external evaluation of the SIPAM network (Information System for the Promotion of Aquaculture in the Mediterranean) was recommended; subsequently, the call for a full external evaluation of CAQ, including all of its Networks, since its inception was requested by the Commission, in view of the forthcoming entry into force of the GFCM autonomous budget. The Meeting of Experts reviewed and summarized major achievements of CAQ and its networks.
