3 The 14 th APEC Roundtable Meeting recommends OFWG to take action on the following recommendations to its future work Session I: Shark Conservation and management APEC economics should be encouraged to: Promote responsible and sustainable use of sharks. Create shark network among APEC economies to promote collaboration on shark research, sharing data and information in regional or sub regional level. Consider adoptions of fins naturally attached * policy. Promote whale shark and manta rays ecotourism. Consider employing DNA barcoding in species indentification and fishery management of sharks and rays. *: Sharks that land ashore should have their fins naturally attached to their bodies 2

4 Develop new and practical techniques in shark species identification such as dermal denticles analysis. Conduct capacity building such as species identification, data collection and enforcement, especially for CITES enlisted species. Work with interested parties to conduct outreach and awareness programmes for local communities on the importance of shark conservation. Partner with private sectors and business through their corporate social responsibility. Amend or adopt domestic measures in supporting implementation of CITES listings of shark and ray species. Conduct more studies on shark s migration such as using satellite tracking. Initiate dialogue among concerned parties or organizations such as CITES, RFMOs, WTO and NGOs about vulnerable shark species at hotspots so that economies would have more information for setting their conservation and management measures for shark. 3

5 Session II: Clean waters Incorporate education on marine environmental issues in schools or communities. Promote awareness among all stakeholders to reduce marine debris. Increase frequency of coastal cleanup activities by involving private sectors, industries, governments, NGOs and local communities.
