CMSHighlights for Monday, 8 February 2010

On Monday morning, 8 February 2010, Elizabeth Mrema, Executive Secretary of the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS), opened the Technical Meeting for the Elaboration of a Conservation and Management Plan for Migratory Sharks. She noted the goal of finalizing the conservation and management plan (CMP) to feed into the third meeting on International Cooperation on Migratory Sharks under the CMS (Sharks III). In the morning, delegates: elected David Hogan (US) as Chair of the technical meeting and Stephen Manegene (Kenya) as Vice Chair; adopted the agenda and rules of procedure; received an update on the conservation status of migratory sharks; and began an initial reading of the draft CMP.

Delegates discussed the need for a preambular paragraph that highlights the non-legally binding status of the CMP. On the objective of improving understanding of migratory shark populations through research, monitoring and information exchange, delegates considered prioritizing actions, traditional ecological knowledge and the role of periodic review and evaluation. On reducing direct and incidental fisheries-related causes of shark mortality, some delegates noted that not all shark fisheries need to be reduced and others noted that sustainability of shark fisheries should be reflected in the objective.
