Project Summary:
IUU within BIOT and the wider Indian Ocean reduced through the improved capacity of DFAR to manage and govern its multi-day fleet complying with international commitments and data reporting obligations under CBD, CMS and IOTC for biodiversity conservation. Livelihoods of fishing households sustainably improved through elasmobranch conservation and identification, development and wide-scale uptake promotion of viable livelihood improvement schemes following pilot livelihood initiatives to increase long-term livelihood and food security opportunities in selected communities. Policy recommendations on improvements to the sustainability of elasmobranch fishing in the multi-day fleet will be developed and promoted nationally and regionally including low income countries.
