As the ‘Strategies for trawl fisheries bycatch management” (REBYC‐II CTI) project draws to a close, it is important that the lessons learned during implementation of the project are shared and discussed with counterpart organizations and key stakeholders working on trawl fisheries and coastal fisheries management in the South East Asia Region. So a lessons learned workshop was organized in Bangkok 9‐10 June 2016. A wide range of stakeholders, working in the Region, including government agencies, researchers, NGOs, international organizations, private sector, CSOs and donors, a total of 28 participants participated in the workshop. The lessons learned by five project countries and at the regional and technical coordination agency level were presented and discussed in detail. The project has built the capacity in the project countries in managing their trawl fisheries and at the same time has created an improved scientific basis for the management. The socio‐economic studies conducted during the last two project years have given a better understanding of the constraints and barriers faced when developing a more sustainable trawl fisheries in the region. The EAFM training promoted by the project has been highly successful for the project countries. The role played by SEAFDEC has been fundamentally important in the development of this training and this capacity will benefit the whole region. It was decided that project will support a larger regional workshop in autumn 2016 to discuss of the future of trawl fisheries in the region. This workshop will be a great opportunity for the project to share knowledge and lessons learned with all SEAFDEC member countries and others, and will help to further develop the action framework for achieving sustainable trawl fisheries in SE‐Asia.
