Interim Report of the ICES-FAO Working Group on Fishing Technology and Fish Behaviour (WGFTFB)
The ICES-FAO Working Group on Fishing Technology and Fish Behaviour (WGFTFB) met in Nelson, New Zealand on 4–7 April 2017. The meeting was chaired by Haraldur Arnar Einarsson (MFRI, Iceland) and Petri Suuronen (FAO, Italy), and the rapporteur was Steve Eayrs (GMRI, USA). The meeting was kindly hosted by the New Zealand National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA). A joint session (JFTAB) was also held on 3 April 2017 with the Working Group on Fisheries Acoustics and Fishing Technology (WGFAST). A total of 73 participants from 15 counties were registered to the WGFTFB meeting. The location of the meeting provided a rare opportunity for the WGFTFB to engage with researchers and others from New Zealand and Australia, and learn of develop-ments and challenges in southern hemisphere fisheries. However, some WGFTFB members were unable to attend the meeting due to its distant location.
