The Workshop was held in order to provide an opportunity to evaluate the activities of the project RECOSCIX-WIO, launched in February 1989 by IOC, and also to redefine the priorities of the project. Details are given of the report of the RECOSCIX-WIO Regional Despatch Centre and the reports of the various cooperating institutions are included as annexes to the publication -- National Museums of Kenya (NMK) Library, Institut Halieutique et des Sciences Marines, Albion Fisheries Research Centre, Instituto Nacional de Hidrografia e Navegacao (INAHINA), Seychelles Fishing Authority, Institute of Marine Sciences, RECOSCIX-CEA Report, International Association of Aquatic and Marine Science Libraries and Information Centres (IAMSLIC) Report, and ODINAFRICA-II. Four Working Groups were held, covering the following themes: 1) Review of project objectives and structure; 2) Services and products -- new technologies that can be used to improve them; 3) Capacity building -- equipment and personnel available in CIs and RDC and what needs to be done to improve on them; and, 4) WIOLIB structure. It was concluded that the original objectives of RECOSCIX-WIO are still valid, and a list is given of recommended actions to be implemented.
