The 3rd ASEM Forum on Marine Fisheries focused on the theme, Green Growth and Cooperation in Fisheries and Aquaculture. The Forum was held in Busan, Korea.
As the Asian economy is rapidly growing, global consumption of fisheries is increasing as well. To meet the global demand, fishing pressure has increased and this has led to the destruction of marine ecosystems and overfishing.
Against this backdrop, the 3rd ASEM Forum aims to provide an opportunity to initiate in-depth discussions on international cooperation in mitigating the impact of climate change on fisheries, green growth and eco-friendly aquaculture and to seek ways to pool efforts worldwide for sustainable fisheries.
