Ah, great design in my opinion. Quite abstract but in a way that still lets you recognize the fish and the water ...

That Portuguese fisheries conference coin may be one of the best designs ever for an FAO coin. Echos of Escher's Metamorphosis.

The Fisheries coin I like a lot too, the Lusophony Games coin ... not that much, as it is basically just a reproduction of the games logo. Now the Pessoa design is good in my opinion because it shows the author's four "identities".
