Abstract: The Working Group on the Application of Genetics in Fisheries and Mariculture (WGAGFM) met at the European Joint Research Centre (JRC), Ispra, Italy 19-23 March 2007. The meeting was well attended; with in total 20 representatives present from 9 countries (10 national delegates and 10 experts appointed by the chairman). In addition we were very pleased to be hosted by the European Science Centre (JRC), which was also represented at the meeting. Six terms of reference (ToR) were on the agenda for 2007: 1. Applications of genomics in fisheries management; 2. Development of a public web based meta-database in support of compilation and accessibility to genetic data related to fish population structure analysis and fish and fish product traceability; 3. Spatial boundary resolution of finfish and shellfish populations and insight into geographic and ecological factors controlling population boundary development by analysis and integration of genetic and spatial data; 4. Application of state of the art genetic methods for stock identification; 5. Optimal extraction and storage of nucleic acids (archiving) for molecular biology studies; 6. Implications of European eel (Anguilla anguilla) genetics for recovery plans. The ICES WGAGFM Report 2007 is published online at http://www.ices.dk/iceswork/wgdetail.asp?wg=WGAGFM.
