Working group on assessment of pelagic resources (CECAF)

Working groups for the assessment of small pelagic resources already exist under FAO/CECAF.

The CCLME project will support and collaborate with this working group in order to best gather input to the TDA/SAP development.

The overall objective of the Working Group is to assess the state of the small pelagic resources and make recommendations on fisheries management and exploitation options aimed at ensuring optimal and sustainable use of small pelagic fish resources for the benefit of coastal countries.
