This report is an overview of my attendance at the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission Meeting 15 Honolulu, Hawaii, USA 9–16 December 2018 which was made possible through a FRDC Development Award.
The report includes information on: (i) what issues were discussed at the meeting, (ii) key learnings; (iii) any networks made, (iv) how might you use any learnings in your career and (v) any opportunities for knowledge transfer and R&D adaption for the ETBF fishery. The report was circulated to Australian Tuna fishers via David Ellis and a Power Point was prepared for presentation at COMRAC as a communication and extension component of this development award.

Objectives

1. To gain an understanding of the international aspects of the WTBF fishery

2. To participate in an international forum discussing the status and management of the fishery on which the ETBF depends

3. To interact with the Australian delegation to WCPFC15 and provide industry input into delegation deliberations on issues before the Commission

4. Personal development; increasing confidence and leadership capabilities in the seafood industry
