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.

First Lessons learned from the Small Pelagics Sustainability Fishery Improvement Project Ecuador


Abstract:
This document summarizes the lessons learned in the first three phases of implementation of the Ecuadorian Small Pelagics Sustainability Fishery Improvement Project (SPS-FIP), which involves 16 Ecuadorian fishmeal processing companies, two ingredient marketers and four international producers of animal feed. This project arose from the need to respond to the market demand to demonstrate the sustainability of the raw material for the aquaculture feed manufacturing industry. The SPS-FIP is led by the National Chamber of Fisheries (CNP, for its acronym in Spanish), with technical support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) through the “Global Sustainable Supply Chains for Marine Commodities” (GMC) project, and the non-governmental organization (NGO) Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP).

Building Equal Opportunities in Fisheries: The Global Marine Commodities Project Gender Strategy


Abstract:
The GMC Project Gender Strategy has been designed in strict accordance with the guidelines of the UNDP and the GEF. The UNDP views gender equality as a human rights principle and as a stand-alone sustainable development objective. It is the basis of one of the key principles of the 2030 Agenda for Development: the concept of “leave no one behind”. For the GEF, gender relations between women and men and between girls and boys play a fundamental role in accessing environmental resources, and controlling those resources and the goods and services they provide. This strategy aims to ensure that women are provided equal opportunities and rights to participate in activities throughout fisheries value chains, and to access the benefits that the Project intends to generate.

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.
