Basic Gender Profile for the Costa Rica Large Pelagic Fishery


Abstract:
The purpose of this document is to provide a brief overview of the gender dynamics in the large pelagic fishery in Costa Rica. The aim is to understand the gender equality regulatory framework and gender equality in practice and expand on information related to needs and barriers that could affect the incorporation of a gender perspective in policy and fisheries management

Key Considerations for Fishery Improvement Projects


Abstract:
The value of FIPs is their ability to engage market players in the journey towards sustainability and this ability can be enhanced if they engage with any existing, government established processes that have the same aims. It needs to be acknowledged that FIPs are neither unique in terms of consultation mechanisms in fisheries nor the main instrument for making progress on fisheries management. This in no means diminishes their value which can be enhanced by making connections to similar concepts such as comanagement, which is widely recognized as being a useful tool for engaging and consulting stakeholders. The aim of this document is to assist those involved in fishery improvement projects and related dialogue platforms by providing information that sets out the circumstance under which a FIP may be most likely to succeed. It makes use of a mix of lessons learned from the GMC project implementation teams and wider reviews of FIP implementation experiences from around the world.

Modeling the effectiveness of holding cages and Thai-style hatcheries in Philippines blue swimming crab fisheries and their economic viability


Abstract:
Fisheries are an important aspect of global food production, but for many, such as the blue swimming crab (Portunus pelagicus) fishery in the Philippines, stock abundance has dropped significantly due to over harvesting. Many strategies exist to manage fisheries, and one such method to mitigate the effects of overharvesting is to allow gravid female crabs to release their larvae before processing the crabs. This strategy can be implemented through placing females in holding cages to allow for spawning or to rear the eggs in Thai-style hatcheries. However, the efficacy of larval release to mitigate the effects of overharvesting has not yet been measured. In this report, a theoretical population model was constructed as a first step in estimating the efficiency of these release methods. The model tracks the survival of a cohort of released crab larvae both in the planktonic and benthic phase.

Pedoman Dasar Proyek Perbaikan Perikanan yang Responsif Gender


Abstract:
As part of the Global Sustainable Supply Chains for Marine Commodities (GMC) Project gender strategy, basic guidelines have been developed for the promotion of gender-responsive Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs). This document presents an overview of FIPs and gender and a theory of change for mainstreaming gender in FIPs to ensure they are gender sensitive and responsive. It also includes practical actions to incorporate gender considerations in a FIP, including four desired outcomes and accompanying activities and output indicators.

Pertimbangan Pokok untuk Ruang Dialog Multi-Pemangku Kepentingan untuk Tata Kelola Perikanan yang Lebih Baik


Abstract:
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is committed to enabling people to share their goals,needs and commitment to managing the use of natural resources (water, forests, soils, fisheries) in a way that meets global sustainable development goals. The UNDP has been facilitating dialogues between people involved in a variety of commodities such as coffee, oil palm, soy, beef and cocoa. The move into seafood enabled this approach to be applied to seeking solutions to the well documented issues associated with overfishing and the inequitable distribution of benefits from the use of fishery resources. As publicly owned resources, fisheries are more likely to be sustainable when stakeholders are actively involved in the management process. The Sustainable Marine Commodity Platform approach ensures that those in the wider supply chain, who also have an interest in sustainable use, are proactively included.
