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.

Gender Analysis and Mainstreaming in the Indonesian Tuna Pole and Line and Blue Swimming Crab Fishery Improvement Projects


Abstract:
Indonesia is one of the world’s principal fish producers. Tuna and blue swimming crab (BSC) are two of its main export commodities originating in fisheries. In the last decade, demand for both environmentally and socially responsible seafood has increased. This study was conducted in response to the need to better understand and recognize gender considerations along the tuna and BSC value chains. Its objective is two-fold: (1) assess the division of roles between men and women, access to resources and participation in decision making in the fisheries; and, (2) map the linkages across project activities to identify critical points for integration of gender in FIP implementation. Case studies were carried out in the yellowfin and skipjack tuna pole and line (PL) fisheries, the blue swimming crab (BSC) fishery, and the associated Indonesian Western and Central Pacific Yellowfin and Skipjack Tuna Pole and Line, and the Indonesia Blue Swimming Crab FIPs. This analysis is part of the Global Sustainable Supply Chain for Marine Commodities (GMC) project in Indonesia, led by the Ministry of National Development Planning (BAPPENAS), with technical support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
