  • The Chairperson, Distinguished delegates, Ladies and gentlemen, Good Morning/Afternoon
  • promotion of sustainable fisheries development to strengthen the capability of member countries through research, training and information dissemination”
  • promotion of sustainable fisheries development to strengthen the capability of member countries through research, training and information dissemination”
  • Past Decade Activities during 2001-2010 – focused on enhancing regional technical cooperation among ASEAN-SEAFDEC Member Countries by involving both government and private sectors through appropriate framework and logistic arrangements by all possible means with a view to reduce disparities and promote solidarity among the Member Countries, of which priority was given to the important issues affecting sustainable fisheries development in the region. Moreover, the importance of the multi-functionality of fisheries focusing on poverty alleviation, livelihoods, and food security was also considered. The main programs were focused on: Human resource development in all aspects of fisheries such as responsible fisheries and aquaculture, maximizing the utilization of fish and fishery products, and on quality and safety standards including the application HACCPInnovative fisheries management, by improving the management concept and approaches for sustainable fisheries, such as strengthening small-scale fisheries management through the promotion of rights-based fisheries management, co-managementStock assessment and enhancement, strengthening the coastal resource assessment capabilities using the national or SEAFDEC research vessels under a cost-sharing policy, and in addition, promoting the regional framework on rehabilitation of fisheries resources and habitats/fishing grounds through resource enhancementPromotion of responsible and sustainable aquaculture, including the development of environment-friendly aquaculture, development of the nutrition-efficient feeds and feeding management, and good aquaculture practicesDisease diagnosis and surveillance of existing highly virulent diseases as well as new emerging diseasesFood safety and quality assurance system particularly on the analysis and detection of chemical and antibiotic residuesImprovement of regional fisheries statistical systems and mechanismsStrengthening joint ASEAN-SEAFDEC harmonized approaches and common positions on priority issues affecting ASEAN-SEAFDEC Member Countries, including those related to international trade in fish and fishery products
  • Taking into account the required emerging issues and changing of the environment such as those relating to the impact of climate change, fish trade related issues, poverty alleviation and livelihoods, fisheries sustainability and food safetyIn 2011 the ASEAN-SEAFDEC Ministers on fisheries adopted the 2011-ASEAN-SEAFDEC Resolution and Plan of Action. SEAFDECprograms would focus on:Continued promotion of sustainable aquaculture development including accelerating awareness and capacity building in fish health management while stock enhancement would emphasize on internationally threatened and over exploited speciesIncluding the quality and safety standards and assurance system especially the food safety of aquaculture products, and traceability system of aquaculture and capture products through the supply chainImproving management concepts and approaches for sustainable fisheries by emphasizing on fisheries governance, and the required adjustment of national policy-management framework to combat IUU fishing through regional cooperation on MCS and improvement of information/data collection, as well as on the promotion of community-based fisheries management or/and co-management under the new concept on ecosystem approach to fisheries
  • RES7. Promote better management of fishing capacity and use of responsible fishing technologies and practices, recognizing the movement towards replacing the “open access” to fisheries resources with “limited access” through rights-based fisheries, and at the same time, secure the rights and well-being of inland and coastal fisheries communities;RES8. Foster cooperation among ASEAN Member Countries and with international and regional organizations in combating IUU fishing;RES10. Strengthen knowledge/science-based development and management of fisheries through enhancing the national capacity in the collection and sharing of fisheries data and information;
  • During the past decade, many attempts had been initiated to improve fisheries management with the fundamental objective of reducing IUU and destructive fishing. The seriousness of this concern has been increasingly expressed through discussions and recommendations in various meetings and consultations such as those of the SEAFDEC Council, the ASEAN Fisheries Consultative Forum (AFCF), the SEAFDEC Regional Advisory Committee (RAC) on Fisheries Management in Southeast Asia, the Regional Plan of Action (RPOA) to Combat IUU Fisheries, as well as during the Meetings of the ASEAN Heads of State especially at the launching of the roadmap for ASEAN Economic Community.
  •  In improving the management of fishing capacity and ensuring that fishing effort do not exceed the availability of resources in the ASEAN countries, the establishment of good and systematic schemes for the registration of fishing vessels, and the development of processes to issue license to fish are the basic requirements. From the comprehensive records on vessels, gear and people involved in fishing, reliable catch data and report on actual fishing effort could be derived. Information on vessels is also critical in developing effective Monitoring, Control and Surveillance (MCS) networks, which are instrumental for the cooperation on management of fishing capacity and support the efforts to combat IUU fishing, in order to achieve long-term sustainability of marine resources and coastal habitats. National arrangements that would facilitate the control and enforcement of laws and regulations should therefore be developed to ensure, maintain and conserve fisheries resources and habitats.
  •  The 13th Meeting of the FCG/ASSP recommended that a common catch documentationscheme for the Southeast Asian region should comply with the requirements of RFMOs aswell with those imposed by importing countries, e.g. USA and EU countries, in order tofacilitate intra-regional trade of fish and fishery products,
