The Fishery Resources Monitoring System (FIRMS) is a partnership of intergovernmental fisheries organizations that share a wide range of high-quality information on the global monitoring and management of marine fishery resources.
FIRMS draws together a unified partnership of international organizations, regional fishery bodies collaborating within a formal agreement to report and share information on fisheries resources.
It was established in February 2004 to respond to the need to achieve a sustainability of the fisheries and to provide relevant, reliable and up-to-date information on a global scale.
FIRMS aims to provide decision-makers with the best and most authoritative information possible in order to develop effective fisheries policies in accordance with the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries.

A voluntary, non-binding instrument, the code is widely recognized as the global standard for settling out the aims of sustainable fisheries and aquaculture for the coming decades.
