Wednesday, November 15, 2023

The Indian Ocean region is moving closer to a harmonised and integrated approach to collecting data for the fisheries sector.

This is being prepared through the meeting of a group of ECOFish National programme managers and observers at the Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay until Wednesday. The representatives are from countries with fishing operations in the region and the rest of the Indian Ocean.

During the meeting, the representatives spoke about the various aspects of observing the fisheries sector in their respective countries, in a bid to keep it sustainable, as well as examine the legal frameworks in their respective countries.

Fisheries observers in various countries are the officers who go on fishing vessels and observe and collect data on the fishing trip processes.

The Ecofish programme run by the Indian Ocean Commission, which was launched in 2022, aims at having in-depth research to produce reliable data. The programme encompasses all the aspects of ensuring the member states meet the set norms such as training, financing and information.
