For this Special Session in September 1997, the Scientific Council selected the Symposium 'What Future for Capture Fisheries - A Shift in Paradigm: Visioning Sustainable Harvest from the Northwest Atlantic in the Twenty-first Century'. The title particularly suited the setting of the NAFO 19th Annual Meeting held in St. John's, Newfoundland upon the invitation of Canada - a Coastal State Contracting Party of NAFO. The Annual Meeting was located in St. John's, Newfoundland, as Newfoundland and Labrador celebrated the John Cabot 500th Anniversary commemorating 500 years of Northwest Atlantic in relation to harvesting the sea. The Symposium was hosted by the NAFO Scientific Council and held at the Marine Institute of the Memorial University of Newfoundland.
