Responsible Fisheries for Small Island Developing States (SIDS)
 The nature of problems faced by SIDS with respect to the effective conservation and management of fisheries resources are not vitally different from those of other states. However, SIDS are considerably disadvantaged in that they do not have the same range of solutions to these problems that larger States have at their disposal. The development objective of the FishCode SIDS Project is to strengthen the capacity of SIDS’ fisheries administrations to promote and facilitate responsible fisheries in support of social and economic development.
