This study aims at contributing to the implementation of the Integrated Maritime Policy in the nine Outermost Regions (ORs) of the European Union (Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Martinique, Réunion, Mayotte, Saint-Martin, Madeira, the Azores and Canary Islands) and their related sea basins (Caribbean-Amazonia, south-west Indian Ocean and Macaronesia). Its main purpose is to identify opportunities for sustainable growth in the blue economy (Blue Growth) in each of the basins, by covering four main areas: the state of play, e identification of potential new maritime activities, a gap analysis of required skills, the provision of up-to-date insights and evidence on the new growth potential.

Recreational Fisheries Economic Impact Assessment Manual And Its Application in Two Study Cases In The Caribbean: Martinique And Bahamas
The paper presents a manual to assess the economic impact of recreational fisheries and its application in two Caribbean countries: The Bahamas and Martinique. The manual was developed with the assistance from the Gertner Consulting Group and the WECAFC/OPESCA/ CRFM/ CFMC working group on recreational fisheries. This manual is intended to help countries better understand the size and contributions from recreation fishing to their economies. The results are meant to explain the economic impacts at the national and regional level.

The Reefs at Risk in the Caribbean project was launched to help protect and restore these valuable, threatened ecosystems by providing decision-makers and the public with information and tools to manage coastal habitats more effectively. The project focuses on compiling, integrating, and disseminating critical information on these precious resources for the entire Caribbean region. This information is intended both to raise awareness about the threats to and value of Caribbean reefs and to encourage greater protection and restoration efforts.
