Fishing for a Sustainable Future in the Pacific Islands (video) / by Francisco Blaha

The World Bank in Sydney has just published a video of a small seminar where a panel discusses the importance of fisheries to Pacific Island nations. They don't go to deep into many topics, but is quite interesting talk on many of the areas I work on daily basis.

Panelists include Transform Aqorau, CEO of the Parties of the Nauru Agreement Office (PNAO), he is a friend... a very well read and clever man, I always listen a lot to what he has say, we share a love of reading, the believe on "thinking outside the box" and the believe that Fisheries Information Management Systems are the way to control the fishery.

The next panelist is Kate Barclay, Associate professor, University of Technology Sydney who I also meet before, she has done work for Greenpeace and other NGOs on Pole& Line.

The 3rd one is John Virdin, Director, Ocean & Coastal Policy; Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke University, whom I have not meet before.

Is a good discussion.
