Side Events

Implementation of Marine Fish Listings on Appendix II

Sunday Sept 25 12:00-14:00 Lunch provided
Room 5  (Hosted by IUCN)

How is CITES helping marine fishes listed on Appendix II? What progress have we made? What more can we do?

This side event will explore progress on implementing Appendix II listings for marine fishes. IUCN SSC Specialist Groups will report on experiences with European eel, sharks, humphead wrasse, and seahorses. We will follow that with a discussion about opportunities and challenges.

Addressing Illegal Wildlife Trade for App II listed Marine Species

Sunday October 2 12:00-14:00  Lunch provided
Room 4 (Hosted by IUCN and FAO)

What can CITES do about illegal trade in App II-listed marine species? How can other organizations and agencies help?

This event will link efforts to reduce Illegal Wildlife Trade (IWT) with initiatives to address Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing. Growing public and policy attention to IWT needs to include ocean species. The CITES Secretariat, FAO and TRAFFIC will help identify successes and opportunities in responding to both IWT and IUU.
