Joint effort on the Sustainability of Transboundary Species: Indo-Pacific Mackerel (Rastrelliger brachysoma)

Indo-Pacific mackerel (Rastrelliger brachysoma) is an economically important species of the Southeast Asian region, which migrates around the Gulf of Thailand (GOT). However, the trends are declining and catches are becoming unstable. Aiming at sustainable fishery resource, healthy habitats as well as ensured well-being of fishing communities, the Technical Consultative Meeting on Drafting of the Regional Action Plan for Management of Transboundary Species: Indo-Pacific Mackerel (Rastrelliger brachysoma) in the Gulf of Thailand Sub-region was held on 12-13 September 2019 in Chonburi Province, Thailand. The attendees of the Meeting were representatives from the countries of the Gulf of Thailand  and South China Sea sub-regions including Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Viet Nam, resource persons from Sweden, Burapha University, as well as SEAFDEC officials and Regional Fisheries Policy Network members.

This Meeting was a joint effort between the SEAFDEC-Sweden Project and SEAFDEC/UNEP/GEF/ Fisheries Refugia Project to develop the Regional Action Plan for Indo-Pacific mackerel management. Both Projects have conducted several activities  such as DNA studies, data collection, among others to understand the stock and habitats of R. brachysoma. The Regional Action Plan would provide a direction within and among countries of the Southeast Asian region to work together in developing appropriate management of Indo-Pacific mackerel based on scientific information.
