||The tenth session of the FAO Committee on Fisheries Sub-Committee on Fish Trade (COFI:FT), which met from 30 May to 2 June 2006, recommended that a Technical Consultation be organized to review the draft Technical Guidelines for Responsible Fish Trade taking into account all relevant aspects of international trade in fish products. COFI:FT noted that the guidelines should further reflect the current environment of international trade in fish products and the dynamic nature of trade, requiring an approach which is forward looking and pro-active. Sustainability of fisheries, illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU), and post-harvest practices were also important factors to be considered.
The purpose of this Expert Consultation was to revise these guidelines taking into account the comments made by COFI:FT. The Expert Consultation agreed that the guidelines should provide practical advice to members on all matters relevant to sustainable fisheries and responsible trade in fish and fish products. It was also recommended that relevant articles in the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries be revisited to reflect developments in the regulatory framework governing trade in fish and fish products that occurred since the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries was enacted.
