The Southwest Indian Ocean Fisheries: Project Brief

The following Project Brief describes how SWIOFP will link the ASCLMEs and WIO-LaB Projects to identify: i) fish stocks that are most sensitive to anthropogenic impacts and environmental variability; ii) a set of prioritized issues that countries riparian to these two LME’s would need to address to ensure sustainable utilization of these resources and conservation of biodiversity within the LMEs, and; iii) how each country will respond to these issues to address it’s responsibility to sustainably manage these shared fisheries both at national and regional levels.
