Regional Technical Workshop on Data Collection Procedures – Mapping, Information and Data Requirements SamutPrakarn, Thailand, March 2013
Access to relevant and sufficient data on the trawl fisheries in the partner countries is critical for the success of REBYC-II CTI. Appropriate data allows for the generation of the information and knowledge necessary to improve local management of trawl fisheries and to monitor the impact of management measures. Further, the lessons from trawl fisheries management, whether successful or not, will become important inputs in the formulation of guidelines and policy advice for more sustainable resource governance. Because each project partner country has its own data collection method and format, a regional workshop will be convened to discuss and agree on data collection processes to generate the necessary understanding about the biological, ecological, social and economic aspects of the trawl fishery including monitoring the impact of any management measures. The project takes an adaptive co-management approach that uses data and information to assess lessons learnt and guide future interventions. For the formulation of initial management plans (or revision of current management plans), existing data and information will be the primary sources of knowledge, including both local and scientific knowledge.
