Implementation of APFIC Trawl Fishery Guidelines

Support implementation of APFIC's Trawl Fishery Guidelines through subject matter exchange.

NOAA supports implementation of the FAO Asia-Pacific Fishery Commisson's (APFIC) "Guidelines on Tropical Trawl Fisheries" through subject matter expertise.  The project leverages data from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the University of Washington's Fisheries Performance Indicators project and exchanges information with local partners looking at science & management challenges.  It aims to create a strategy to integrate locally developed best management practices into various regional sites to pilot application of the APFIC Guidelines.
