Report of the SIOFA2 Meeting, Mauritius, 17-20 March 2015

Date: March 20, 2015

Mauritius was among the first member countries to sign the Southern Indian Ocean Fisheries Agreement (SIOFA) on 5 July 2006 and ratified it on 10 December 2010 after ensuring that all legislations were in place at national level for an effective implementation of the SIOFA. For a Small Island Developing State like Mauritius, the long term conservation and sustainable use of the fishery resources through the committed cooperation of the membership of SIOFA, in full transparency and good governance, is of great importance.
