Experiences and case studies in the implementation of data collection methods for artisanal fisheries
MetadataShow full item record
Details are given of experience gained during the design and implementation of data collection methods for artisanal fisheries in a number of countries under the FAO Technical Cooperation Programme, and other national and regional projects supported by UNDP and Government Cooperation Agencies. Some general approaches that have been introduced in a number of FAO member countries are illustrated and major constraints and problems that are found to be common in the design and implementation of statistical developmental activities are highlighted. It is concluded that statistically-related management tasks are performed more effectively if designated to a national fishery statistical committee or work group with responsibilities and modus operandi as regards system design, development, implementation maintenance and support. Prior to implementing a large-scale system at national level it would be advantageous to develop a prototype system in a geographically limited but representative area. Based on experiences gained from the prototype system, stepwise expansion of the system in other areas may be necessary, by first considering new methodological requirements and operational/logistical constraints.
