“Let’s Go Fishing” virtual expo of work being done under PISCES in East Grand Bahamas in The Bahamas
PISCES project SME Mentor, Raquel Beneby-Hart, hosted a virtual expo called, "Let's Go Fishing", on March 8, 2021 to highlight work done under the project in East Grand Bahama in The Bahamas. Ellsworth Weir, Grand Bahama Parks Manager at the Bahamas National Trust and Captain Philip Thomas of PISCES SME, Captain Phil and Mel’s Bonefishing Guide Service, were interviewed about sustainable livelihoods in coastal biodiversity environments and how you can get your environment to work for you and pay you.

1st meeting of the Fisheries Data and Statistics Working Group (FDS WG) Barbados, 14-17 May 2018 – Matrix for the Characterisation of Fishing Activities
The matrix provides users with a tool to describe a fishing unit across multiple dimensions or characteristics of scale. The flexible nature of the matrix means that the fishing unit being assessed can either be an entire fishery/fleet, a part of it, or an individual vessel/ fisher. This flexibility allows the matrix to be applied to diverse types of fishing activity around the world. Applying the matrix generates an aggregate score for the given unit under assessment, with relevance for discussions of scale. A given fishing unit may have characteristics typically associated with both smaller-scale and larger-scale fisheries, so many will receive lower scores in some categories and higher scores in others.

3rd meeting of the CFMC/OSPESCA/WECAFC/CRFM/CITES Working Group on Queen Conch. Panama City, Panama, 30 October – 1 November 2018
The purposes of the Third meeting of the CFMC/OSPESCA/WECAFC/CRFM/CITES Working Group on Queen Conch are to contribute to implementation of Recommendation WECAFC/16/2016/1, with emphasis on implementation of the Regional Queen Conch Fisheries Management and Conservation Plan, 8 improvement and standardization of trade data and statistics, and strengthened regional collaboration to ensure the sustainable management and trade of queen conch.
A discussion paper for the CLME Project Concept/ TDASynthesis Workshop
The purpose of this outline document is to develop a shared vision for the Full Sized Project which is key an objective of the PDF-B project. Reviewing the Concept Paper the key features of the Full Sized Project are: - Through the mechanism of the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis, to characterise and analyse the root and underlying causes of transboundary issues relating to the management of marine resources in the CLME and develop and agree on a Strategic Action Programme to address those causes (component 2 TDA). - Compilation and sharing of existing sources of information required for good governance of marine resources, and identification and filling of knowledge gaps (component 2 TDA). - Establishing a culture of networking and cooperation among the countries for management of marine resources, focusing on existing institutions and structures rather than creating new ones (component 3. SAP development). - Establishment of a monitoring and evaluation framework for the environmental’ status of the CLME in line with the ecosystem management approach and SAP implementation (component 3 SAP development). - Create successes that serve as examples of how countries can collaborate to manage transboundary marine resources through ‘Strengthening by doing’ (component 4 Demonstration projects)
A Fisheries Ecosystem-based approach to the development of Transboundary Diagnostic Analyses and a region-wide Strategic Action Programme
A preliminary Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) for the Caribbean LME and adjacent North Brazil Shelf LME was developed during the PDF B phase of the CLME project. Given the complexity and diversity of the region in terms of its biogeophysical, socioeconomic, legislative and cultural characteristics, a sub-regional approach to assessing the status of the region’s living marine resources was selected. For this purpose, the CLME Area was subdivided in 3 geographic subregions: (i) Insular Caribbean subregion; (ii) Central & South America subregion; and (iii) Brazil-Guyanas subregion. However, the updating of the TDA’s under the Full-Sized Project implementation phase used an alternative –innovative- approach: rather than using the physical limits of the 3 former geographic subregions, ecological “limits” corresponding to 3 “fishery ecosystems” considered key to the sustainable management of the shared living marine resources in the Wider Caribbean were used as the departure point for the development of the updated TDAs.
A Handbook on Governance and Socioeconomics of Large Marine Ecosystems
The primary purpose of this Handbook is to serve as a practical guide to innovators of governanceand socioeconomics in Large Marine Ecosystem (LME) projects. Based on a Global EnvironmentalFacility IW:LEARN-sponsored workshop for 11 LME programs,1 the Handbook is designed to beused in short courses and workshops on governance and socioeconomics science to support theecosystem approach to marine resources management
A Monitoring and Evaluation Mechanism for the Caribbean Large Marine Ecosystem (CLME+) Strategic Action Programme (SAP)
In 2013, coastal countries of the CLME+ region adopted a 10-year Strategic Action Programme (SAP) for the Sustainable Management of the Shared Living Marine Resources of the Caribbean and North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems (CLME+ SAP, 2013). This SAP provides a roadmap for sustainable living marine resources management, which is to be achieved by targeted interventions supported by strengthening and consolidating cooperative governance arrangements at the regional and subregional levels.
