  • Customer :

    IRD (within the World Bank funded SWIOF programme)
  • Years:

    from January 2011 to March 2013
  • Project description :

    The study carried out by COFREPECHE from 2011 to 2013 funded by the French Fund (Fonds français pour l’environnement mondial) and within the SWIOFP was to assess the socio -economic impacts of artisanal fishing on FADs. The first phase of the study conducted in 2011 within two months (ref. IOC54) consisted of :

    • Establishing an overview of fishing activities with anchored FADs specifically by fishing modes (occasionally, species targeted in conjunction with other professional fishing modes and mono- specific fishing activities)
    • Understanding the implementation of anchored DCP fishing in countries that do not use ones. The results of the analysis delivered to the IRD and SWIOFP a fairly accurate guideline of the effects of the introduction of FADs on fishing communities, global fisheries management and food supply. They led to the creation of monitoring indicators for the success of the implementation and / or operational capability of DCP equipment in Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique and Tanzania.

    From November 2011 to March 2013, COFREPECHE conducted the second phase of the study. Following data collection missions in the concerned countries, sheets to monitor the socio-economic impacts of anchored FAD fishing were drafted then the COFREPECHE expert evaluated the results of the monitoring carried out by the institutions of the beneficiary countries in 2012.
