This magazine is based on contributions from secretariats of regional fisheries management organizations, regional fisheries advisory bodies, permanent observers and related networks and partners, as well as colleagues from FAO and other agencies and organizations working on matters relevant to these bodies. The publication of this issue of the RSN Magazine was made possible thanks to the funding provided by the Government of Japan. The Fisheries and Aquaculture Division of FAO hosts and provides the RSN Secretariat services, the venue for biennial meetings, and works with the network day-to-day on technical and operational issues. In this context, the Secretariat will continue working with its members, partners and colleagues, to ensure, as much as possible, that voices and experiences from different regions are being considered.
