Development of a network to support an open access, on-line, fish technology knowledge base

Objective

The main objectives are (I) to improve the knowledge base and enhance the intonation infrastructure for the area of post-harvest fisheries technology and utilisation and (2) to facilitate effective development of R&D, application of technology, and better quality and safety in this area for the European Union and Associated States. This will be achieved by developing (A) a co-operative Network of Experts and User Centres to input information into an online, open access, fish technology database, searchable by keywords and with multiple linkages and cross-referenced. This will be nested in new open knowledge directory bonefish on the Internet being developed by F AO for the fisheries research and development community. (B) A Fish Technology Discussion Forum within the bonefish platform to facilitate online discussion, develop ideas, identify contacts, source information, initiate new linkages and access mailing lists. Once (A) and (B) are established the user centres will support the input do information and its quality assurance. F AO will continue to host and maintain the system on behalf of the Network.
