CRFM Consultancy Report on Stakeholder Identification and Analysis of the Flyingfish Fishery in the Wider Caribbean – CRFM Technical and Advisory Document No. 2012 / 7
The flyingfish fishery is the most economically important small pelagic fishery in the southern Lesser Antilles. There is concern among scientists and policy-makers in the region that limited cooperation among the states and expanding fishing fleets have resulted in over-exploitation of the resource. The Caribbean Sea Large Marine Ecosystem (CLME) project was developed to address those governance needs in several fisheries in the Caribbean including the flyingfish fishery. The Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism (CRFM) is responsible for undertaking the management of the flyingfish study.
