Titre SWIOFC - Report of the Workshop on Bycatch, Particularly in Prawn Fisheries, and on the Implementation of an Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management. Maputo, Mozambique, 15–24 November 2005.
Résumé The Workshop on Bycatch, Particularly in Prawn Fisheries, and on the Implementation of an Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management was attended by participants from Kenya, Madagascar, Maldives, Mauritius, Mozambique, Seychelles, South Africa, Somalia and the United Republic of Tanzania. The workshop was also supported by resource persons from Italy, Nigeria and the United States of America. The workshop received from the countries national reports and reviews concerning bycatch, sea turtle distribution, critical habitats, main sources of natural and man-induced mortality and conservation efforts. The use of turtle excluding devices (TEDs) and interactions between sea turtles and fisheries in the shrimp trawling was discussed. It was concluded that two workshops about turtle and fisheries should be set up, the first for collecting data on turtle occurrence and mortality and the second for presenting these results to managers, fisheries associations and industry in an attempt to find the best solutions and exchange knowledge. Information about the countries implementation of the ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF) management effort was reported. Two different methods of identifying ecosystem approach to fisheries issues and risk analysis in order to prioritize the issues were presented and tested. Obstacles on implementing the EAF were considered by the workshop and, as a way forward, it was concluded that a risk assessment for sustainable fisheries (RASF) approach should be applied in order to implement EAF in the region. This could be done in national case studies.
