  • 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.

  • Customer :

    Private Client
  • Years:

    from 2013 to 2013
  • Project description :

    The objectives of the review were to:

    • Analyse the status of fish resource in Sri Lanka on basis of the available data/information;
    • Point out incoherence and data gaps in the feasibility reports that may have a direct influence on the sustainability of the proposals;
    • Formulate amendments and recommendations, and where necessary, new data collection suggestions;

    Give an appraisal regarding the impact that the construction of the three fisheries harbour may have on the resource and its sustainability taken into account the estimated fishing effort evolutions linked with the harbour construction.
