Ecosystems Improved for Sustainable Fisheries (ECOFISH)

The USAID/Philippines Ecosystems Improved for Sustainable Fisheries (ECOFISH) project uses an ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management to achieve social, economic and ecological sustainability and combat illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing.

The USAID Philippines Ecosystems Improved for Sustainable Fisheries (ECOFISH) project conserves marine biodiversity, enhances ecosystem productivity and improves fisheries and related livelihoods in eight marine key biodiversity areas using an ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management to achieve social, economic and ecological sustainability.

This five-year project is helping the Philippines to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing by supporting sustainable fisheries management; strengthening national, provincial and district governments to provide fisheries management as a public service; strengthening enforcement capacity and creating reporting tools for fishing violations; building constituencies for management and partnerships with the private sector; and promoting marine protected areas and no-take zones as critical for fisheries management.
