During one day, the administrations, scientists, environmental organizations and even the fisheries industry will discuss on how they will channel their respective responsibilities in order to achieve this eagerly awaited triple objective.

Since 1985, the Spanish Ministry responsible for fisheries organizes the Conference of Fisheries Ministers in parallel to the World Fishing Exhibition. Concepts like fair trade and responsible fisheries have arisen from these meetings and the debate has been opened on notable topics for fisheries management, such as the fight against illegal fishing, the role of joint ventures in the economic development of third countries or the preponderance of the fishing activity in the economies of coastal states. This year, the conference will be celebrated at the Parador de Baiona, which will bring together more than fifty Fisheries Ministers, as well as international organizations like FAO and the European Commission.
