Guide and information sheets
for fishing communities

 

Prepared by Michael King with information and comments supplied by staff from SPC and members of The LMMA Network.


The purpose of these information sheets is to assist fishing communities, and people working with them, by providing information on species, habitats and other topics of interest and advice on appropriate management options for them. Community-based fisheries management involves fishing communities taking a key role in managing the fisheries resources and habitats on which they rely for both food security and livelihoods. To do this, communities require technical information and advice on the resource species and the habitats involved.

Each sheet provides information on species, distribution, habitats and feeding, lifecycle and reproduction, fishing methods and fisheries management options.

In addition, three posters (see the end of the "List of documents") have been produced, one that summarises management options for places where "Fish have become harder to catch", and the other two to highlight the importance of the mangrove and seagrass habitats.

The series has been produced by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community in collaboration with the Locally-Managed Marine Area (LMMA) Network.
