I-Fish Explained: Why is data collection so important for Indonesian Fisheries?

February 2014

The team of Fishing & Living have been collecting data under the USAID funded program (Fishing & Living- Enhancement of the Indonesian Handline Tuna Fishery: An integrated Community-Based Approach to Sustainability) for the duration of 2013 and before this through  Anova funding and support. This data has been entered into the I-Fish database, a database developed by USAID for the purpose of supporting data from private industry and developing systems which will eventually allow this data to be submitted to government and integrated into national stock assessments.

These videos explain how the data collection is done by the enumerators in the field and explains why this type of data is so important for the management of tuna fisheries for the future:
