Genetic consequences of fisheries and fisheries management

Report from a multi-disciplinary workshop in Rönne, Bornholm, 25–26 October 2006

This report summarizes talks, discussions and conclusions from a multi-disciplinary workshop on genetic consequences of fisheries and fisheries management held in Rönne, Bornholm in October 2006. The workshop was intended for fishermen, scientists, decision makers, managers and other stakeholders from the Nordic countries. The main objectives were to improve communication between parties involved in fisheries management present current knowledge regarding genetic consequences of fisheries, and highlight the importance of including genetic/biological data in the management of exploited fish species agree upon recommendations on how genetic considerations could be implemented in management and decision making processes.

This report summarizes talks, discussions and conclusions from a multidisciplinary workshop on genetic consequences of fisheries and fisheries management held in Rönne, Bornholm in October 2006. The idea of arranging the workshop was put forward during an expert-seminar at Hólar College on Iceland in 2004 arranged by the Nordic Council of Ministers, where selected expert scientists discussed the current knowledge regarding the effects of commercial fishing activities on the genetic diversity of wild, marine fish species in Nordic waters.
