    Building Capacities and Awareness on Regional Fisheries Governance in the Western Central Atlantic - GCP/SLC/015/EC 2021

    There has been a steady decline in fisheries production in the Western Central Atlantic region in recent years. Given the recognized need to improve fisheries management, secure sustainable fisheries and develop the fisheries sector in the region, it was anticipated that investment in regional fisheries management would reduce reliance on imports. During the 16th Session of the Western Central Atlantic Fishery Commission, the decision was taken to launch the process leading to the establishment of a Regional Fisheries Management Organization, which was expected to contribute to the sustainability of fisheries resources through better fisheries governance at regional level. The present project was implemented between 2017 to 2019 to follow up on this important question for members of the Commission, as well as to prepare the background documents for and support the organization of the first preparatory meeting, which was to mark the practical phase of the transformation of the Commission.

    Enhancing Fishery Management in the Western Central Atlantic Fishery Commission Area 2018
    Also available in:

    At the 14th and 15th sessions of the Western Central Atlantic Fishery Commission (WECAFC), the European Union (EU) member countries expressed an urgent need to improve fisheries data and information collection in the wider Caribbean region. The identified data gaps lessened the effectiveness of significant efforts made to improve fishery management, and constituted one of the major reasons preventing a change of WECAFC status towards a management organization. The project aimed to contribute to the availability of high quality information for fisheries management and development in the area, in support of improved and more informed decision-making and policy development for fisheries and marine resources.

    The eleventh session of the Scientific Advisory Group (SAG) of the Western Central Atlantic Fishery Commission (WECAFC) was held virtually from 25 to 27 April 2022. The SAG considered the outcomes of the work carried out by various joint Working Groups (WG) between 2019 and 2022 and their recommendations to the 18th Session of WECAFC (WECAFC18). The SAG also reviewed the status of the main fish stocks in Areas 31 and 41. A revised version (v0.8) of the Data Collection Reference Framework (iDCRF) was also reviewed. During the meeting, the Working Groups and other regional experts presented reviews of draft fishery management plans and regional strategies, a regional plan of action, as well as a guide and a study.
