The Working Group on the Application of Genetics in Fisheries and Mariculture (WGAGFM) met in Olhão, Portugal, 2–5 May 2017. Nineteen participants from 11 coun-tries discussed the four Terms of Reference (ToR) and associated matters. Specifically, there was a focused discussion concerning the proposal by the ICES Science Committee to establish Aquaculture Steering Group (ASG). It was agreed unanimously that the WGAGFM, would wish to be affiliated to the new steering group, while retaining collective interest in capture fisheries. It was further agreed that the WGAGFM would submit an application to coordinate an ICES training course broadly on the Application of Genetics and Genomics to Fisheries and Aquaculture Science.
