    Studies of the Tuna Resource in the EEZs of Sri Lanka and Maldives - BOBP/REP/41 1987
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Tuna are an important fishery resource in the exclusive economic zones of Maldives and Sri Lanka. In June 1984, a working group comprising representatives from the two countries met in Sri Lanka to take stock of available knowledge on tuna, identify gaps in that knowledge and evolve a workplan to fill the gaps. These were summarized in BOBP/WP/31. The present report covers later investigations and updates knowledge on the tuna resources in the EEZs of Maldives and Sri Lanka. During this wor k, the working group met in Male, Maldives (October 1985) and in Colombo, Sri Lanka (September 1986). These meetings discussed the sampling programmes conducted by Maldives and Sri Lanka. This report, as well as the meetings of the tuna working group and the sampling programme were sponsored by the “Marine Fishery Resources Management” component (RAS/81/051) of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP). The project commenced January 1983 and terminated in December 1986. It was funded by the UNDP ( United Nations Development Programme). Its immediate objective was to improve the practice of fishery resources assessment among participating countries (Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia) and to stimulate and assist in joint management activities among countries sharing fish stocks.

    Fishery Statistics in the Bay of Bengal - BOBP/WP/59 1989
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This report describes current fisheries statistics collection systems in six countries of the Bay of Bengal region — Maldives, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Thailand (west coast), Malaysia (west Peninsular) and Indonesia (Sumatra, north of the equator). Suggestions for improving existing systems are made for each country. It is hoped that the report will be useful to national fisheries statistics organizations, planners and policy makers. The report was sponsored by the Marine Fishery Resources Man agement Project (RAS/81/051) of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP). BOBP’s Senior Fishery Biologist provided supervision and guidance for activities described in the report. RAS/81/051 commenced in January 1983 and terminated in December 1986. It was funded by the UNDP (United Nations Development Programme) and executed by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations). Its objective was to improve the practice of fishery resources assessment among participating countries and to stimulate and assist joint management activities between cbuntries sharing fish stocks.

    Studies of Interactive Marine Fisheries of Bangladesh-BOBP/WP/89 1993
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Concerned about the effects of the estuarine set bagnet fishery on the shrimp and finfish resources and also on other marine fisheries dependent on the same resources, the Bangladesh Department of Fisheries, with the assistance of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP), conducted a two-year (1989-91) biosocioeconomic assessment of the estuarine set bagnet fishery. In ordcr to make the assessments needed for management purposes, it was necessary to gather information on other interactive fisheries: t he marine set bagnet, trammelnet, bottom longline and shrimp trawl fisheries. The only major marine fishery not included was the Hilsa fishery, which does not interact with the estuarine set bagnet fishery. This report contains the information (catch rate, seasonality, catch, effort, biological parameters and cost and earnings) gathered in the estuarine set bagnet and other interactive fisheries, but the socioeconomic information and biosocioeconomic assessment results are published separate ly as BOBP/WP/90 and BOBP/REP/62. The authors of the seven parts of this paper were all members of the Management and Development Project, Department of Fisheries, Chittagong, Bangladesh, and were assisted by BOBP’s Senior Fishery Biologist, Dr K Sivasubramaniam. The investigations were done under BOBP’s “Small-scale Fisherfolk Communities” project funded by DANIDA and SIDA and the reporting under “Bioeconomics of Smallscale Fisheries” funded by UNDP.
