The Norwegian Fishery Forum for Development Cooperation is an informal forum for cooperation between Norwegian institutions involved in or with interests in projects with assistance to the fishery sector in developing countries. The Fishery Forum was established by Norad in 2003 and is headed by a group of representatives from some of the institutions involved.
The Forum has arranged several meetings and seminars and receives economic support from Norad. The secretariat function of the Forum is vested in the Institute of Marine Research.
The main purpose of the Fishery Forum is to be a meeting point for discussion of thoughts, ideas and principles of importance for development cooperation within the fishery sector. The Forum also aims to promote communication and cooperation between Norwegian institutions involved in the fishery sector in developing countries.
