FileOFM Knowledge Management Strategy by admin — last modified Apr 06, 2010 10:11 AM
The proposed knowledge management strategy for the Oceanic Fisheries Management (OFM) project sets some guidelines which have been shaped by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and regional OFM commitments to increased awareness and understanding of the Pacific Islands Oceanic Fisheries Management project. Through the suggested activities, and given its placement as a subset of the OFM project Information Strategy, the strategy aims to frame a dynamic interaction within which information and knowledge work can be developed by and in partnership with the key beneficiaries, being the project’s 15 Pacific Island1member countries.

FileStrategy to Promote and Strengthen Environmental NGOs Stakeholder Participation and Public Awareness of OFM Issues by admin — last modified Apr 06, 2010 10:11 AM
The Global Environment Facilitiy (GEF) is providing further assistance to the Pacific Islands Oceanic Fisheries Management (OFM) Project to support Pacific small island developing States (SIDS) efforts as they participate in the setting up and initial period of operation of the new fisheries commission that is at the centre of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries (WCPF) Convention. Pacific SIDS are reforming, realigning, restructuring and strengthening their national fisheries laws, policies, institutions and programmes in order to take up the new opportunities which the WCPF Convention creates and to discharge the new responsibilities which the Convention requires of them.
FileOFM Experiences and Lessons Learned by admin — last modified Apr 06, 2010 10:11 AM
The review methodology involved an examination of literature and consultation through workshops and at meetings with personnel from fisheries administrations, regional agencies, donors, and consultants that had experienced reform or were involved in executing, implementing or reviewing institutional reform and strengthening activities. The review draws on experiences of Pacific Island Countries (PICs) and Australian and New Zealand fisheries administrations.
FileDevelopment of Fisheries Legislation in the Pacific Islands by admin — last modified Apr 06, 2010 10:11 AM
The purpose of this paper is to provide a basis for setting up a checklist and a template that can be used for gauging the best practices when reviewing fisheries legislation. Some provisions are dealt with in more detail than others, with greater attention being devoted to those aspects of a fisheries law which will need revision in order to bring the law into line with modern conservation and management approaches, as well as looking at novel aspects designed to give effect to UNFSA1 and WCPFC2.
FilePacific Islands Regional Plan of Action for Reducing the Incidental Catch of Seabirds in Pelagic Longline Fisheries by admin — last modified Jan 10, 2014 11:12 AM
Available information indicates that seabird interactions with longline vessels operating in tropical and subtropical areas of the western and central Pacific Ocean (WCPO) are very rare, except in the Hawaii-based longline fisheries. A large amount of observer data have been collected from tropical and subtropical Pacific pelagic longline fisheries (15.7 million pelagic longline hooks in 8,786 sets observed from 1995-2005).
FileAddressiing Shark Finning in FFA Member Counttriies Issues and Considerattions by admin — last modified Apr 06, 2010 10:11 AM
The subjects of sharks and shark finning have been on the fisheries management agenda in Pacific Island countries for a relatively short period. The activities leading up to and subsequent adoption of the Food and Agriculture Organization’s Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries (1995) and International Plan of Action-Sharks (2000) have been two of the more visible activities that have brought the subject to the fore in recent years.
FileBismarck 2008 Pelagic by admin — last modified Apr 06, 2010 10:11 AM
The scientific objective of this series of campaigns is to better understand the role of seamounts in both benthic and pelagic ecosystems. Bismarck 2008 is structured around two overall objectives, i.e. conservation, through an inventory of benthic fauna biodiversity, and sustainable management of the exploitable resources and oceanic tuna fisheries linked to seamounts.
WCPFC factsheets by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Aug 04, 2009 10:35 AM
The Western and Central Pacific Ocean accounted for 54% of the world's tuna catch in 2007 making tuna a key economic resource. Increasingly industry, environmental organisations and the international community are closely monitoring the outcomes from WCPFC annual meetings.

FileA Quick Guide: Deep-Sea Biodiversity by admin — last modified Jul 02, 2010 06:12 AM
The deep sea is the largest ecosystem on Earth but it is also the least understood. The seas cover 71% of the Earth’s surface and 65% of this is open-ocean. 88% of the open oceans are deeper than 1km and 76% have depths of 3-6km (Herring, 2002). Ocean trenches are the deepest parts of the oceans (the hadal zone) the Marianas Trench is up to 10,912m deep. Such a vast habitat represents a huge challenge for marine research and for management of human impacts on marine life.

FileAddressing Shark Finning in FFA Member Countries: Issues and Considerations by admin — last modified Jul 02, 2010 10:14 AM
Increased demand in last 20 years for shark fins has been driven by (1) social and political reforms in China that have not discouraged consumption of shark fin soup as in the past, (2) relaxation of trade restrictions between Hong Kong and China that have made it easier and more profitable to process shark fins in China that are originally exported to Hong Kong from worldwide sources, and (3) economic expansion in China, including Hong Kong that has created an expanded middle class more able to afford high priced delicacies such as shark fin soup.
