Description

The Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries (CCRF) is a voluntary set of global principles, goals and areas for action that is intended to guide developed and developing countries alike in formulating and implementing responsible fisheries management policies and practices. Officially adopted by FAO members in 1995, the Code serves as an important reference point for national legislators and as an internationally agreed framework to direct global efforts to achieve the sustainable exploitation of aquatic resources, taking all relevant economic, social, nutritional, cultural and environmental aspects into account. In this video, FAO experts speak in more detail about the Code and related initiatives. © FAO: http://www.fao.org
