RECOFI Regional Aquaculture Information System online

In March this year, the Regional Aquaculture Information System (RAIS) Web site, created by the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department under the aegis of the Regional Commission for Fisheries (RECOFI) went online.

RAIS aims to facilitate the exchange of aquaculture information in the Gulf area among regional experts and stakeholders and to promote and develop a sustainable aquaculture industry.

A recent report summarizes the different steps which have lead to the establishment of the system including actions that should be undertaken by Member countries to consolidate the system to enhance regional aquaculture information sharing and dissemination.
