Aquatic genetic resources, for the development of sustainable and responsible aquaculture and capture fisheries, are included within the Multi-year Programme of Work of the FAO Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, which calls for the preparation of a first report on The State of the World’s Aquatic Genetic Resources. This workshop focused on assessing existing information base and information sharing systems on aquatic genetic resources and on ways of improving collection and sharing information on these resources. Special attention was paid to explore ways and means of improving FAO member data collection at species level and the future strategy to follow in order to produce The State of the World`s Aquatic Genetic Resources.
