Essential EAFM
Developing capacity in the
ecosystems approach to fisheries
management (EAFM)
For fisheries management to be effective
it’s not enough for fisheries managers
to consider any target species in isolation.
An ecosystems approach which includes
ecological
human
economic
and governance dimensions
offers a far greater chance of
developing realistic
and sustainable management plans.
Support for an ecosystem approach to fisheries
management has long been in place
through a range of global declarations,
policy instruments and organizations.
Recognition also
exists at the national
and regional levels
that the ecosystem approach offers the most practical and
effective way to manage complex fisheries.
However, progress in developing ecosystem-based
management plans has been slow.
Fisheries staff lack experience in how to implement
this integrated and holistic approach.
Decentralization also leaves local units needing to develop
management plans that not only work locally
but also fit into broader fishery and ecosystem strategies.
