GLOBAL - The Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) Aquaculture Service is calling for contributions to the development of a worldwide overview and databank of Codes of Practice, Codes of Conduct, Best (Better) Management Practices, Technical Guidelines, etc. in aquaculture.

Jiansan Jia, Head of the Aquaculture Service at FAO said: "We would like to invite all those interested in the promotion of sustainable aquaculture development to advise FAO of the existence of COP/BMP documents in their countries or regions.

"In particular, all aquaculture producer associations and farmer organisations are encouraged to send to FAO their Codes of Practice, Codes of Conduct, Best (Better) Management Practices, Technical Guidelines, etc. COPs/BMPs in aquaculture, as available with national and international organisations, would also be important and should also be contributed."
