1st FISHERMAN Regional Conference from 10-11 SEPTEMBER 2015 in MAHAJANGA, MADAGASCAR

The Indian Ocean is the smallest, youngest and physically most complex of the three major oceans. Most of the water area of the Indian Ocean lies within the tropical and temperate zones, with a significant biodiversity and several upwelling zones important to commercially valuable marine species. Although great fisheries potential, some areas of this ocean are still insufficiently known.

The main aim of the 1st edition of the FISHERMAN Regional Conference is to bring together regional and international professionals involved and interested in the FISHERY Fishery sector, to exchange ideas and to promote an effective collaboration in the South-Western Indian Ocean.



- To enhance the understanding of sustainable ocean resources governance, its management and use in the region by critically assessing the agenda for reform.

- To discuss the present situation in the Region about Fisheries Management and Fisheries Education.

- To present the FISHERMAN project and its developments.
