Project Summary:
The balance between sustainable tropical marine ecosystems (TME) and Sustainable Small-scale Fisheries (SSSF) is delicate. SSSF require robust evidence-based management, which in TCI is impeded by insufficient fish landings and life history data for stock assessments. With DECR and local fishers, the project will: build fishers’ capacity for participation in fisheries management; centralise landing sites; train DECR staff in landing and biological data collection and management; provide equipment for the DECR Fisheries laboratory and conduct stock assessments using data collected.
