Four Additional Enumerators Hired and Trained in Buru Island, Moluccas

April 2013

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOur team of trainers have  just finished their third training for 2013. This time 4 new enumerators were hired and trained North of Ambon. The fishery here is highly artisanal and carried out on very small boats (<1 GT). Trips to sea are less than one day and usually a day’s catch for a fisherman comprises of 1-2 large tuna and several smaller individuals, usually skipjack tuna. The large tuna is sold directly to the export market and the small fish are sold locally.

The new enumerators have started collecting data and spreading the word on sustainability in the communities in which they are based.
