Fishery data collection and integration strategy for underpinning sustainable fisheries management in Montserrat 2018

Marine Overseas Territories Fisheries Montserrat

Abstract

This Data Integration Strategy aims to provide a consolidated view of the number of processes to improve the fishery, compare them to a modern standard in fisheries sustainability, identify residual gaps in meeting sustainability targets, and to provide a strategy for implementation. This strategy focuses on fisheries related data streams and management of current and new data.

This document was produced for the Government of Montserrat. It remains in draft form until it is incorporated into the Government’s fisheries policy.

This study was undertaken as part of a programme of Natural Capital Assessment (NCA) in the UK's Caribbean Overseas Territories implemented by JNCC and conducted by SAERI. Funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) of the UK Government through the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF), the work sits under the Environmental Resilience programme which includes objectives to integrate natural capital considerations into economic and social development planning.
