    This report is an expanded version of an earlier report issued in Thai in 1999. Ms. Mala Supongpan, Ms. Jean Schofield and Messrs. Veravat Hongskul, Purwito Martosubroto and Siebren Venema have contributed to it, the latter being responsible for the final document. The substantial papers presented at the first day of the Workshop are also being edited and will appear as a supplement to this report.

    This document describes the first known attempt to conduct a formal energy audit in a trawl fishery in Thailand, and is the result of collaboration between the FAO, the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC), and the Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI). The overall goal of this project was to contribute to greater economic performance of the fishing fleet, improve resilience and livelihoods of fishermen and their families, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. For the first time in a Thai trawl fishery, an energy audit was applied to the single-boat trawl fleet. The audit consisted of two levels. The Level 1 audit consisted of a detailed questionnaire of fishermen in the single-boat trawl fleet and the Level 2 audit consisted of at-sea measurement of fuel consumption of trawlers under a variety of commercial operating conditions. A total of 94 fishermen were audited as part of the questionnaire. Considerable variation was found in the fishing fleet, including vessel age, service speed, propeller size, and engine maintenance schedules. The consumption of fuel was the dominant operational expense for each size category of trawler, being an order of magnitude greater than the other categories, followed by crew wages and then food. Responses by fishermen suggested highly diversified and personalized fishing activity, although some responses appeared to suggest inaccurate recall of their major fishing costs. Six trawlers were selected for at-sea measurement of fuel consumption over a 10-day fishing trip.

    Review of Internet Websites for the Small Pelagic Fish Species: Sardines and Anchovies 1998
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This report provides a list and evaluation of sites on the World Wide Web that contain information potentially relevant to management or operations of small pelagic fisheries. The majority of the sites listed provide information that directly concerns the biology, ecology, and fisheries of small pelagic fishes such as anchovies and sardines (pilchards). Other sites evaluated provide information on climatic and oceanographic processes that are thought to effect the population dynamics o f these fishes. The document lists and evaluates over 100 Internet web sites and is the product of about 300 hours of "surfing" the Web.
