to another New Year. This bulletin comes round quicker every time, and we never
seem to struggle to fill it!!
work of our group has continued to be very productive as well as global. After
a successful EAFE conference in Esbjerg and a strong European representation at
the IIFET conference in Oregon, the Economic Incentives and Concerted Action
programmes have continued to bring large groups of fisheries economists together,
as well as the many multi-national projects.
working relationship with DG Fisheries has been strengthened and our President
will seek to further improve relations in the coming year. We all have a role to
play to encourage this process along. The strong representation of DG Fisheries
in Esbjerg supports our belief that our economic advice does play an important role
in the future management of European fisheries.
Our EAFE website has been a great medium for acquiring details of our Association and its members. The website has now been given an international domain name (www.eafe-fish.org) and SJFI in Denmark has taken over the responsibility for its maintenance. Possible changes to the site will be proposed, to include even more information and to make it more interactive and user-friendly. The Bureau also plans to address the future role of the Bulletin and its distribution. You will all be notified of any changes. Please forward any ideas for the website to email@example.com.
use of e-mail is now the most frequently used mode of communication and it is
hence up to all of us to notify the EAFE of changes to our
e-mail addresses. All current e-mail addresses of EAFE members are available on
Bulletin editorial duo would like to wish you all the best for 2001. We look
forward to seeing you in Salerno!!
