The 67th Annual meeting of the Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute will be held in Barbados, during 3–7 November 2014 at the Accra Beach Hotel and Spa. The meeting is being hosted by the Centre for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (CERMES), of The University of the West Indies (UWI), Cave Hill Campus, Barbados.

CONFERENCE THEME

The theme of the 67th GCFI conference is “Small islands, big issues: applying fisheries and marine science to solve problems and create opportunities.” The United Nations General Assembly has designated 2014 as the "International Year of Small Island Developing States (SIDS)" or IYOS. The SIDS process started in 1994 with the UN Global Conference on the Sustainable Development of SIDS held in Barbados. This resulted in the Barbados Programme of Action for the Sustainable Development of SIDS (BPOA) that identifies priorities for addressing the special challenges faced by SIDS. Coastal and marine resources feature prominently in the BPOA and the Caribbean region contains the largest number of SIDS.
