Corporate Author:
Food and Agriculture Organization

Stock status is a key parameter for evaluating the sustainability of fishery resources and developing corresponding management plans. Unfortunately, the majority of stocks are not assessed, often as a result of insufficient data and the lack of resources needed to execute formal stock assessments. This working group focused on two approaches to estimating fisheries status: one based on single stock status and the other based on ecosystem production.

It includes sections on policy-making including monitoring indicators, gender-equitable land governance and other legal issues, capacity development for gender-equitable land tenure institutions, and technical issues such as planning, valuation, taxation and reform.
