The Fishing & Living Team has Made Much Progress in 4 Months with a Small Grant From USAID

May 2013

The small grant for Anova’s Fishing & Living Program is now in its 4th month, and the Fishing & Living Program is making excellent progress with training and deployment of enumerators.  So far, in total 14 enumerators have been trained, and these enumerators are now collecting data on tuna landings in Kupang (TPI Oeba and TPI Tenau, in East Nusa Tenggara), in Maumere (East Nusa Tenggara), Buru Island (Maluku), and Ambon (Maluku). Of course, the ten enumerators working in Labuan Lombok, and Sumbawa Besar (West Nusa Tenggara) are still active as well.  The network of enumerators now covers an area spanning 1,500 km from central to eastern Indonesia.  The enumerators measure species and size composition of the catch—Especially size composition is important, because the average size is an indicator for the exploitation status of the stock, providing vital information for management.
