MetadataShow full item record
The International Seminar on sustainable fishing Technology in Asia toward the 21th Century was tha first challeng as the big international gathering opportunity for the fishing technologists between Indonesia and Japan, as well as in the Asian Pasific region. This was the 3rd JSPS International Seminar on Fisheries Science in Tropical Area as the follow-up to the 1st Seminar on food Processing in 1995, and the 2nd Seminar on Aquaculture in 1997 under the support from the Japan Society for Promotion of Science and counterpart organization in Indonesia. The first idea for holding the workshop to discuss the common tasks and goals in the field of fishing kchnology was begun since 1992, when we had the halfday workshop of International Trends and Perspectives in Fishing Technology, in the Japanese Society of Scientific Fisheries, by the steering energy given from Dr.F.S.M.Chopin from the Marine Institute, Canada. This enthusiasm was firstly realized in the 4Ih Asian Fisheries Forum held at Beijing in 1995 as the 1st workshop of Cooperative Research in h i a for Fishing Technology (CRAFT). This new wind encouraged the key-persons for organizing The fishing technologists in each country in corresponding with the international perspectives on Responsible Fisheries, which was later steered by the Training Department of the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center. In 1996, the steering committee of the Colloquium of the Fishing Technology, Japanese Society of Scientific Fisheries, held the International Workshop on Responsible Fishing Operation in Asian Pacific, by inviting the international experts as the lecturers and commentators such as Prof.D.Monintja and Dr.B. Murdiyanto from Indonesia, Mr.B.Chokesanguan from the SEAFDEC/TD, Dr.S.Kennelly from Australia, and Dr.C.Glam from USA. The fruitful discussion during the workshop actually set the goal to go 10 the next step-up for holding the International Seminar in Indonesia as the landmark meeting for fishing technologists in Asian pacific through the intensive contact between Prof.K. Satoh and Prof.D.Monintja.
