Supporting Nature and People – Partnership for Enduring Resources (SNAPPER)

The SNAPPER project aims to enhance sustainability and profitability of deep-slope capture fisheries in Indonesia, through effective collaboration between companies, communities and government agencies.

Supporting Nature and People – Partnership for Enduring Resources (SNAPPER) Project is a partnership between USAID and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and implemented by The Nature Conservancy. SNAPPER focuses in the deep-water snapper, grouper and emperor fishery which includes over 100 species, but data on catch and effort are limited. Because these fish are hard to identify and in some cases the taxonomy is unclear, stock assessments are challenging and companies struggle with complying with requirements to properly label fish. The project aims to address technical challenges for stock assessment and improve the availability of actionable information for resource managers and users, while supporting improved governance and enabling industry progress towards sustainability. SNAPPER will focus on effective regulation and collaborative management of legal hook-and-line fisheries, while also addressing illegal, unregulated and unreported (IUU) fisheries that have an effect on the target resources.

Coming soon.
