The Fishing & Living team began a 1 week training of new enumerators for the implementation of our Port Sampling Program for 2 new landing sites in East Indonesia. A total of 6 enumerators will be trained to implement the “Port Sampling Protocol for Artisanal Handline Tuna”. The enumerators are from 2 sites in Nusa Tenggara Timor (NTT), namely; Kupang and Maumere. The topics covered in the training are: Basis sustainability, port sampling on target and bycatch, port sampling on endangered, threatened and protected species, fish identification and data entry. Team building and environmental awareness are important aspects of the training.
The training event will result in 6 new enumerators who will be actively working from 2 newly established fishermen livelihood offices and will submit data to the IFish (developed by IMACS program of USAID) database for compilation and analysis.
The training of the enumerators and the establishment of the fishermen livelihood centers are a partial fulfillment of the work under the USAID grant entitled “Fishing and Living-Enhancement of Indonesian Handline Tuna Fishery: An Integrated Community-Based Approach to Sustainability”.
