At the 10th Asian Fisheries and Aquaculture Forum, held from 30 April to 4 May in Yeosu, Korea, I presented a paper on the lessons learned from preparing to soon-to-be released skipjack species profile. The presentation benefited from earlier discussions with Dr Patricia Kailola who undertook most of the preparation of the skipjack profile.

Here is the Abstract, and here is the PPT

Hunting & gathering fisheries, aquaculture information

AsiaPacific-FishWatch is rising to the challenge of finding information on Asia-Pacific fish species, their fisheries and aquaculture and the people who bring them through the supply chain to our bowls and plates. Much of it is not written down, and even some that is can be difficult to find. Therefore, with great joy, I came across the e-print collection of one of the larger fisheries research institute in the region – the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research. Here is the e-prints address: http://eprints.cmfri.org.in/. Loaded with scans of publications going back to 1948, and up to the present, you can search the more than 8,000 papers by year, author, subject, document type or division.  The collection is also indexed in many of the main academic services, including Scientific Commons, Scirus and Google.
