    The mandate area of the Western Central Atlantic FisheryCommission (WECAFC) lacks a regional fisheries managementorganization (RFMO). This means that shared fisheriesresources are not being managed collaboratively. As aconsequence, the region is in the top five of the mostoverexploited fisheries areas in the world. Improvingthe governance of fisheries in the WECAFC mandate area iskey to enhancing the status of resources, stoppingthe downward trend in fisheries production, and ensuringlong-term sustainable fisheries. The project aimed to increasethe capacity for effective participation by the membersof WECAFC in fisheries governance in the region.
