Management of large pelagic fisheries in CARICOM countries (En)

Series: FAO Fisheries Technical Papers

Large pelagic fish are important to the small-scale, commercial and recreational fisheries in many Caribbean Community (CARICOM) countries. They are seen as an area with potential for growth. As most are transboundary, their management requires collaboration among countries in the context of international fisheries agreements. The FAO Technical Cooperation Programme project described in this report sought to assist CARICOM countries in formulating an approach to the development and management of large pelagic fisheries.

The approach involved two thrusts, addressing each group of large pelagics: oceanic and coastal. The project compiled and reviewed a wide range of material on large pelagic fisheries in the Caribbean. This included status of resources, fishery harvest and post-harvest sectors, status of national and regional management initiatives and the extent to which countries are engaged in international management activities such as those undertaken by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT).
