Project funded by The SciCOFish project provides a reliable and improved scientific basis for management and decision making in oceanic and coastal fisheries, giving P-ACP countries the means to develop efficient management measures, the skills to monitor their effectiveness, and some important tools to combat IUU fishing on the high seas.The SciCOFish project provides a reliable and improved scientific basis for management and decision making in oceanic and coastal fisheries, giving P-ACP countries the means to develop efficient management measures, the skills to monitor their effectiveness, and some important tools to combat IUU fishing on the high seas.

The oceanic activities provide scientific support for new tuna management initiatives adopted by P-ACPs at a critical time for conservation of the stocks, in particular, intensive observer training and enhancement of national fishing activity databases.The coastal activities are focused on projects combining an urgent resource management issue with a strong local capability to address the issue and maintain a long-term programme.

timor_visit_1Timor Leste is a Pacific ACP country for the purposes of EDF10 (European Development Fund), and therefore needs to be included in the SPC EU project SciCOFish. As non- member of SPC, the country never benefited from any SPC assistance, and the organisation has little information and few contacts in the country.For this reason, an initial SPC visit was planned to meet national partners and to identify priorities for project engagement.
