How to move through the website and toolbox and select the most appropriate set of tools for your fishery

The four main EAF management planning steps are the same irrespective of whether a fishery is small or large scale, industrial or artisanal, data poor or data rich. The complexity of the methods and tools that should be used to complete each step vary greatly depending upon the situation and the capacity of those involved. Methods developed for industrial fisheries managed by a developed country will generally be inappropriate for a small scale fishery in a remote community. Methods for small-scale fisheries are, however, often applicable to both developed and developing countries.

The selection process must recognize:

  • the sophistication in management arrangements and processes,
  • the complexity of problems,
  • the quality and quantity of formal and informal information available,
  • the institutional and technical capacity of those involved,
  • the time and resources to complete planning and implement all necessary actions


To assist users choose the tools most appropriate for their situation, the EAF Toolbox provides descriptions of the EAF process with increasing levels of detail. This starts with an overview of each Step, moving to more detailed descriptions of each of the key activities in each Step and finally, summaries and analyses of the various Tools relevant to each key activity plus a section devoted to consultation tools . Each section includes relevant questions and key actions designed to help both with the efficient completion of the key activities and with tool selection. Finally there are ‘play lists’ that provide suggested sets of tools for three different ‘types’ of fisheries that can be used as starting points.
