Cod recovery event is a sell out Published:  08 February, 2007

REGISTRATION for a symposium being held in Scotland next month to look at cod recovery has been closed due to the high level of interest in the event.

The North Sea and North Western Waters Regional Advisory Councils are joining force to stage the event at North Queensferry, Scotland on March 9 and 10.

Its aim is to bring together all involved in the cod recovery programme to look at the reasons for the cod decline in the North Eastern Atlantic, the success or failure of management measures to date and the fundamental question of whether cod recovery is possible and what measures are needed to achieve this.

Ann Bell from the North Sea Regional Advisory Council said today she was delighted by the unexpectedly high level of support for the symposium, which will be supported by FISHupdate magazine and FISHupdate.com.
