The CRFM JICA CARIFICO WECAFC IFREMER MAGDELESA Workshop on FAD. Fishery Management to be held next week will provide a forum for participating countries. and agencies to review and share research results and best practices in the construction. use and management of FADs as tools for sustainable development management and. conservation of large pelagic resources in the Caribbean. The workshop will be held from Monday December 9 to Wednesday December. 11 2013 at the Methodist Church Hall in Kingstown St Vincent and the Grenadines. At the event the participating countries and institutions will provide status reports. on FAD fisheries the target fish resources and their management Fish often caught with. FAD include the blue marlin Makaira nigricans the yellowfin tuna Thunnus albacares. and the blackfin tuna Thunnus atlanticus, National Fisheries Authorities from Antigua and Barbuda Barbados Belize. Dominica Grenada Guadeloupe Guyana Haiti Jamaica Martinique St Kitts and Nevis St. Lucia St Vincent and the Grenadines Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago will be. represented, Additionally senior representatives from key regional and international fisheries. related organizations and initiatives involved in FAD fisheries management activities such. as Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism CRFM Caribbean Network of Fisheries. Organization CNFO Japan International Cooperation Agency The French Institute for. Ocean Research IFREMER UN Food and Agriculture Organization FAO WECAFC UWI. and University of Florida will attend the Workshop. Future work plans and action plans for the countries directly involved in the. implementation of field activities under the CARIFICO Project will be discussed at the. upcoming meeting, Finally research findings and recommendations from the French funded. IFREMER MAGDELESA project will be presented and recommendations made to FAO. WECAFC and CRFM on the further use and management of FAD in the Caribbean The. workshop will feature presentations from CRFM member countries key experts. representing CRFM IFREMER JICA and FAO WECAFC In 2011 and 2012 the MAGDELESA. project successfully deployed FADs in Dominica Grenada St Kitts and St Vincent See links. to projects on the Downloadable Resources page at the end of this release. In March 2013 the CRFM and JICA jointly organized the FAD Fishery Management. Workshop as a follow up to the CRFM JICA Master Plan FAD pilot activities at which best. practices in the construction use and management of FADs were discussed. Subsequently the Caribbean Fisheries Co management Project CARIFICO a joint. collaboration between the CRFM member countries and JICA was initiated on May 1. 2013 and it will run for approximately 5 years,More below.

FAD USE IN THE CARIBBEAN, In ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA new fisheries regulations have been enacted in 2013 and this makes.
provisions for the deployment of FAD s with permission from the Chief Fisheries Officer The. registration and licensing of vessels and fishers as well as the display of identification marks and. numbers on vessels are all tied to the conditions for FAD fishing. DOMINICA reported that landings of yellowfin tuna Atlantic blue marlin skipjack and blackfin tuna. both on the East Windward and West Leeward coast of the island increased as a result of FAD. GRENADA has reported that currently there is only one FAD deployed that is active It is part of the. MAGDELESA FAD Project from IFREMER The Fisheries Division is the designated management. entity There are 28 fishing vessels executing fishing operations off the said FAD. In ST KITTS AND NEVIS over the past 5 years the concept of FADs was resuscitated through a series of. workshops that were held island wide 18 privately owned FADs were constructed and deployed in. the waters of the Federation FADs were seen as measures to reduce fishing pressure on reef. fishery lure new entrants to the sector enhance food security and sports fishing. In NEVIS the success of one fisher who continued FAD fishing since then 1999 2008 is recorded. as having landed 61 160 lbs of pelagic species with dolphin fish mahi mahi making up over 70. of the catch, FADs are currently being constructed and deployed by fishers in ST LUCIA in collaboration with the. Fisheries Division FADs are deployed on both the east and west coast of the island. On 15 March 2012 two FADs were deployed on the western coast of ST VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES. The deployment of these FADs are part of a project known as the MAGDELESA project and was. done in collaboration with IFREMER and the Fisheries Division One FAD was deployed 3 miles. offshore on the western coast of St Vincent and the other 5 miles on the western coast of Bequia. They are single head buoy FADs with a GPS indicator that gives real time information on the. floatation device s present position, Reference CRFM 2013 Report of the CRFM JICA Fish Aggregating Devices FAD Management Workshop for OECS Countries 13 March. 2013 Roseau Dominica CRFM Technical Advisory Document No 2013 5 61p.

BACKGROUND, In response to the request from the CRFM member countries the Government of Japan. through JICA implemented a technical cooperation project on Formulation of Master Plan. on Sustainable Use of Fisheries Resources for Coastal Community Development in the. Caribbean from 2009 to 2012, Baseline surveys were conducted in 13 target countries from May to December 2009 to. understand the current situation and issues that the fisheries sector faces Based on the. analysis of the data and information collected during the baseline surveys a preliminary. master plan was produced and potential pilot projects were identified in February 2010. Fishing Aggregating Device FAD Pilot projects were implemented in Dominica and St. Lucia during 2010 2011 aquaculture Pilot activities in Jamaica and Belize and Fishery. Statistical pilot projects were implemented in St Vincent and the Grenadines and Guyana. The FAD Pilot Project implemented during the development of the Master Plan confirmed. that diversification of coastal fishery using FADs has great potential and can be used as a. tool to involve fishers and their organizations in the sustainable use of large pelagic fishery. resources However unregulated and excessive number of FADs may cause. overexploitation of large pelagic fishes which could reduce the economic advantage of. having such devices, Since fisheries policy and resource management plans and budget structures are not.
properly developed and in place at the national level and no joint regional management. systems are in place for the coastal pelagic and other shared resources there is some. concern that these resources could become overexploited To address this issue a. multinational master plan for fisheries resource management and development is needed. The Final Report of the Master Plan proposed 1 to establish practical co management. models for sustainable use and management of the fisheries resources 2 to promote. participatory resource management and development toward co management and 3 to. formulate and strengthen the regional network by sharing the local expertise and lessons. learned in each country, Towards Sustainable Development of Fisheries for the People of the Caribbean Page 4 of 5.
