Indicators for long term management of Fisheries Refugia

GEF-UNEP/SEAFDEC Fisheries Refugia Project

The establishment and operation of a regional system of fisheries refugia in the South China Sea and the Gulf of Thailand required a mechanism (Figure 1) to achieve the target objective to “operate and expand the network of fisheries refugia in the South China Sea and the Gulf of Thailand for the improved management of fisheries and critical marine habitats linkages. Additionally, to ensure long-term management of the fisheries refugia, the appropriated indicator sets as well as the standardized methods for collection and analysis of data and information, for the use in assessing the impacts of fisheries refugia are needed. In response to this, the Project Coordinating Unit (PCU) for the SEAFDEC/UNEP/GEF Project on Fisheries Refugia organized the Regional Meeting on Indicators for Refugia Management on September 9th -11th, 2019, in Pattaya, Chonburi province, Thailand. 17 participants (5 Females and 12 Males) from 6 participating countries namely, Indonesia, Cambodia, Malaysia, Philippines, Viet Nam, Thailand, and PCU staff attended the meeting. Throughout the brainstorming sessions, the meeting could come up with the set of indicators for the management of fisheries refugia
