The Blue Millenium Project: Managing Fisheries for Biodiversity (2001)

The Blue Millennium Project was created to help national biodiversity planners come to grips with fisheries issues.

WFT surveyed progress in 52 countries on dealing with fisheries issues in biodiversity planning; prepared a "Fisheries Primer" for planners, and convened an international workshop on fisheries and biodiversity.

The workshop Blue Millennium: Managing Global Fisheries for Biodiversity, was held in Victoria, B.C. June 25-27, 2001, and brought together authors of fisheries management case studies from around the world, including Canada, Namibia, Philippines, Brazil, Laos, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Barbados, Uganda and New Zealand.

The workshop represented the first opportunity for global fisheries scientists and management professionals to meet and review actual national experiences in incorporating biodiversity considerations into the fisheries sector.
