Caribbean Billfish Project (CBP) Project Document
The objective of this Caribbean Billfish Project (CBP) is to develop business plans for one or more long-term pilot projects aimed at sustainable management and conservation of billfish within the Western Central Atlantic Ocean. The divergence in value between the commercial and recreational subsectors represents a significant ‘entry point’ and opportunity for conservation and value creation which this project aims to exploit. The completed business plans will incorporate the economic, technical and financial rationale and feasibility to attract investment involving private and public capital. The project also contribute significantly to regional capacity building, information sharing systems and management and conservation planning for billfish. The Executing Agency of this subproject is described as “WECAFC/FAO”.
