The Southeast Asian State Of Fisheries And Aquaculture 2017
The sustainable development and management of fisheries needs to be corroborated with comprehensive information on fisheries status and trends. The 2011 ASEAN-SEAFDEC Conference highlighted the same need to “strengthen knowledge/science-based development and management of fisheries,”and therefore adopted the “Resolution on Sustainable Fisheries for Food Security for the ASEAN Region Towards 2020.” The provision to “strengthen national statistical mechanisms for fisheries and aquaculture and the exchange of statistical data and related information; and include other non-routine data and information such as fish consumption surveys as well as mobilizing local and indigenous knowledge with the aim of improving the valuation of fisheries and monitoring their performance, to address the needs of the ecosystem approach to fisheries and adaptation to climate change” isemphasized in the “Plan of Action,” which was also adopted at the 2011 Conference. SEAFDEC, during the past decades, accumulated a variety of fisheries data such as regional fishery statistics obtained from the national statistics of the ASEAN Member States (AMSs) and information generated from several SEAFDEC programs and projects. SEAFDEC then integrated and analyzed these data and information in “The Southeast Asian State of Fisheries and Aquaculture” or “SEASOFIA” to support the sustainable fisheries development and management in the region. SEASOFIA is published with the aim to provide better understanding on the status and trends of fisheries and aquaculture of the region. This publication also aims to raise awareness and preparedness, and enhance the capacity of the AMSs to respond to issues and challenges in fisheries.
