Deep-sea Fisheries Symposium

12-14 September 2001
Havana, Cuba

Hosted by the Scientific Council of the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries

The Scientific Council of NAFO is pleased to announce this Symposium to be
held in conjunction with the NAFO 23rd Annual Meeting in Havana, Cuba,
co-sponsored by NAFO, the International Council for the Exploration of the

Organization (CSIRO). The Symposium will be co-convened by J.A. Moore (NAFO
- USA), J.D.M. Gordon (ICES - UK), T. Koslow (CSIRO - Australia), and
organized by the NAFO Secretariat.

Deep-sea fishery resources are increasingly exploited in various places
around the world. A worldwide trend exists towards increasing exploitation
of deepwater fishery resources. This has raised a number of issues
concerning both the biology and management of these resources. The purpose
of this Symposium will be to discuss the available biological information
and the issues in the management of deepwater fisheries. The Symposium will
address deepwater resources around the world, those resources being ones
typically fished at depths greater than 300 meters. Topics include the

·Age, growth and reproduction of target species
·Life histories and estimates of production
·Identification of stocks and environments
·Impacts of fisheries on the target populations
·Bycatch and impacts of fisheries on habitats
·Techniques and methods used in deepwater fisheries
·Deep-sea crustacean and cephalopod fisheries
·Policy and management of deep-sea resources, especially in international
·Sustainability of deep-sea fisheries


The Symposium will be convened for three days. Papers will be presented in
non-overlapping thematic sessions, and posters will be displayed throughout
the meeting. Oral presentations will be 30 minutes, including a question
period. On the last day, a session will be devoted to summarizing the major
themes and conclusions of the Symposium.

Written work shall be presented in English and the meeting will be
conducted in English.


The Symposium will be held in Havana, Cuba. Information on venue, hotels
and other accommodation will be made available by March.


The Symposium is open to scientists, managers, policy-makers and all those
