The project “Strategies for trawl fisheries bycatch management” (REBYC-II CTI Project) is concluding. The significant result of the project in the Philippines is the Samar Sea Fisheries Management Plan (SSFMP) that is now functional through the Alliance of Local Government Units (LGU). Various studies, part of the project and outside the project, had contributed to the plan and its operationalisation. The seminar was to familiarise the stakeholders on the details of the studies that support the SSFMP. The National Stock Assessment Program of the BFAR with the National Fisheries Development and Research Institute (NFRDI) provided important stock estimates as a basis for the planning. The results of the oceanographic and demersal fishery survey of M/V DA-BFAR, the critical habitat study, gear catalogue and mapping of fishing areas and more importantly, the study on socio-economic status of trawlers in Samar Sea were shared. Results of some fishery studies done by the Samar State University were also discussed. It was concluded that such research studies need to be continued, and that the plan and implementation should continue to make use of the studies for effective management. BACKGROUND /
