Type of document: Reports
The workshop aimed at 1. discussing and exchanging information and perspectives towards a broader understanding of the needs and opportunities in the development of capacity regarding ABNJ; 2. contributing information on capacity development to the global deliberations towards a legallybinding international instrument on BBNJ under UNCLOS; and 3. formulating the next steps towards advancing capacity development regarding ABNJ, building on past and ongoing initiatives and experiences (especially the outputs of the Common Oceans Program), and responding to global prescriptions on capacity development in relation to marine resources and their management.

Report of the Namibian Observer Training Workshop, 2-5 October 2017, Cape Town, South Africa
Category: Tuna & Biodiversity
Type of document: Reports
The main aim of this workshop was capacity building of the national observers responsible for collecting data onboard tuna longline vessels operating out of the Republic of Namibia. In many observer programmes, including in Namibia, observers traditionally collect fisheries data only, and have little understanding or training in bycatch-related data collection. This workshop provided training in the use of best practice seabird bycatch mitigation measures and seabird data collection to enhance and accelerate uptake of these measures by fleets operating in critical fishing areas of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.
The Marking and Identification of Fishing Vessels
Category: Oceans Partnership
Type of document: Communication material
Fishing vessels need to be marked in such a way that they can be easily identified in accordance with international standards. Correct use of vessel markings enables a fishing vessel to be linked to its identity, as contained in vessel records. Through proper marking the operational and/or historical information related to the vessel can be retrieved, including its fishing and other authorisations.
