The implementation of ISLME project has been designed to improve fisheries resource management, in four Fisheries Management Areas (FMA or FMA) of Indonesia that are FMANRI 712, 713, 714 and 573 and the coast of Timor Leste bordered to Indonesia waters. There are three components of the project namely: 1) Identifying and addressing threats to the marine environment including unsustainable fisheries; 2) Strengthening capacity for regional and sub-regional cooperation in marine resources management; and 3) Coordination with regional information networks, monitoring of project impacts, and dissemination and exchange of information. According to ISLME Project Document (GCF/RAS/289/GFF), through an important process under component 2, the project are piloted at seven sites, four of them will be in Indonesia (FMA 712, 713, 714, and 573) and two in Timor-Leste and one in transboundary area.

    Hammerhead shark is one of the most common shark species in the tropics. The sharks were caught by longline and drift gill nets either bycatch or target catch. Research on the length frequency and sex ratio of scalloped hammerhead shark (Sphyr lewini) was conducted at two shark landing sites in the southern of Java in 2010, mely Oceanic Fishing Port of Cilacap and Fish Landing Site Tanjung Luar, East Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara. Data were collected from the surveyed areas including the length of frequency and the sex composition. The research objective was to obtain data and information for magement and conservation of scalloped hammerhead sharks. The results showed that the size distribution of scalloped hammerhead sharks females and males were between 51 cm to 300 cm TL and 127 cm to 244 cm TL, respectively. Sex ratio of male and female were unequal, where female caught more frequent than male. The catch during the study was domited by the immature fishes. This condition remind that s harks resources should be maged wisely for their sustaibility.
