Proposal for Regional Logbook Guidelines For fishery management and stock assessment purposes

The need for guidelines to design logbook for fisheries data collection has been identified in the WECAFC region in response to several initiatives. One key initiative was the endorsement of regional fisheries management plans at regional level for conch, lobster and flying fish, recommending the implementation of data collection instruments such as logbooks for artisanal and industrial fleets (e.g., conch), and for improvement of existing national data collection systems (e.g., flying fish). The recommendation to improve national data collection systems was an output of the WECAFC-FIRMS Data Workshop held in January 2016 in Barbados1, and was further reinforced after national reviews by Belize2, St. Lucia3 and St. Kitts and Nevis4 which were done late 2016.
