Report on the Fourth Dialogue Meeting, 8 October 1982
The meeting was chaired by the President of the Council, Professor G Hempel, The General Secretary acted as Rapporteur.
As for the previous three meetings (Coop.Res.Rep., Nos. 106 and 113), the meeting was attended by scientists and administrators from member countries. There were also participants representing the fishing industry in some member countries. FAO, the International Baltic Sea Fishery Commission, and the Commission of the European Economic Communities were also represented. A List of Participants is given in Annex 1.
The Chairman welcomed the participants and briefly outlined, what had been achieved by the three previous meetings. What had started largely as an explanation by the biologists of their methods and working procedures, had gradually become a dialogue, which for each meeting had been more specific. The two groups of scientists and managers not had a better understanding of each others' "language" and the constraints under which they worked. This was one major achievement. The other was the effect of the meetings on the work and the reports of ACFM. One example is the grouping by ACFM of the fish stocks according to the possibility for carrying out assessments and formulating advice in the form of options (see Coop.Res.Rep., No.113, p.1-2).
The Chairman then proposed the Agenda for the present meeting, which is given in Annex 2, and the meeting agreed,
