The Fourth Intergovernmental Meeting on the Establishment of the Central Asian and Caucasus Regional Fisheries and Aquaculture Commission was held in Cholpon Ata, Kyrgyzstan in the period 22??24 June 2011. The Meeting was attended by delegations from eight countries (Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Turkey and Ukraine) and an observer from the Caspian Environment Programme (CaspEco). The Meeting, which was the Second Session of the Preparatory Meeting (which was convened at the Third Intergovernmental meeting in December 2010), finalized and made progress on the most required documentation for the Inaugural Meeting of the Commission. The Meeting reviewed the draft Financial Regulations, and discussed, amended and approved through consensus the Inaugural Meeting Agenda, the logo and the acronym of the Commission. The Meeting also discussed and approved the interim technical advice presented, consisting of the "Draft Better Management Practices for Carp Production in Central and Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia", "Draft conclusions and recommendations of the regional study on the feasibility of restocking and development of culture-based fisheries in Central Asia", and the "Draft technical guidelines for sturgeon hatchery practices and management for release". The interim technical advice is to be presented to the Inaugural Meeting of the Commission for final endorsement.
