The implementation of the Caribbean and North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems (CLME+) Strategic Action Plan (SAP) throughout the Wider Caribbean Region (WCR), including the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), has as part of its mandate, the development of an integrated reporting mechanism on the State of the Marine Environment and Associated Economies (SOMEE). In this
regard, the OECS through this consultancy – Preparation of Inputs to CLME+ State of the Marine Environment and associated Economies (SOMEE) Report and the Implementation of the CLME+ Strategic Action – has developed an OECS SOMEE for its Member States utilizing
the Driver (D) – Pressure (P) – State (S) – Impact (I) – Response (R) (DPSIR) Analytical Framework to describe the status of coastal and marine habitats and fish stocks, effects of marine pollution and other drivers and pressures such as climate change, and matters relating to socioeconomic, management processes and principles, international commitments, and governance.

State of the Marine Environment and associated Economies in the CLME+ region (SOMEE) reporting mechanism Information Booklet
This booklet introduces a unique and first ever regional mechanism for assessment and reporting on the state of the marine environment and how the marine environment contributes to socio-economic development and human wellbeing. This mechanism, the main outputs of which will be an integrated report and interactive online platform, has been called for by the countries and by Intergovernmental Organizations with a mandate for ocean governance in the region. The aim of this booklet is to raise awareness about and increase stakeholder buy-in for the SOMEE mechanism. A description of the building blocks for the SOMEE mechanism, the assessment approach, and report outline is followed by examples of the kind of contents to be expected in the SOMEE report.

This is the 9th status report since the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network (GCRMN) was founded in 1995 as the data arm of the International Coral Reef Initiative (ICRI) to document the ecological condition of coral reefs, strengthen monitoring efforts, and link existing organizations and people working on reefs worldwide.

This desk review considered over 100 pertinent documents on the subject matter and 74 of them (Cited literature) were selected for their critical contents. Three main billfish species have been assessed by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT): blue marlin, white marlin and sailfish. ICCAT is responsible for the statistical and
biological data collected for billfish stock assessments and for the modeling approaches adopted to assess status of exploitation.
Billfish are caught as bycatch in large Atlantic tuna fisheries. This review finds that billfish resources have been subjected to intense exploitation in the tuna and tuna like fisheries in the Atlantic Ocean for more than six decades, and as consequence billfish resources appear depleted, overfished and/or undergoing overfishing.

This Document makes a description of the status of the coral reefs in the mesoamerican region, taking in mind that:
-The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System (MBRS/MAR) region has received increasing recent attention as a priority for international conservation organizations to provide more research and conservation effort;
-Human and natural threats are continuing, resulting in declining reef condition;
-Live coral cover has declined greatly while chronic human stresses escalate, in parallel with environmental changes and natural events. Coral cover on some reefs has declined by more than 50%;
– A 2006 comprehensive survey of 326 representative reefs revealed regional coral cover averaging 11% (11% Belize, 7.5% Mexico Yucatan, and 14.4% Honduras & Guatemala combined); but some sites have higher cover;
– Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System (MBRS) project found coral cover from 11–26% at 13 strategically selected sites from 2004–2005 (most/all within MPAs); 96 new surveys in 2007 to 2008 on shallow fore-reefs (2–5 m) in 6 Belize regions showed coral cover of 13%; total fish biomass had declined (average 49.8g per m2); – — – coral and fish abundances are below the Caribbean average;
– Low coral cover indicates that reefs have not recovered from the 1998 bleaching and Hurricane Mitch;
– It is urgent to develop measures to increase reef resilience and lobby for stronger protection of reefs in good health

FROM VISION TO STRATEGIC ACTION
PROJECTS AND INITIATIVES
The CLME+ Hub is an initiative of the Secretariat of the CLME+ Interim Coordination Mechanism (ICM), in collaboration with the members of the CLME+ ICM and CLME+ Project Executive Group (PEG) and (prospective) Partner Organizations. Development of the Hub has benefited from the financial support of the UNDP/GEF Project: “Catalysing Implementation of the Strategic Action Programme (SAP) for the Sustainable Management of shared Living Marine Resources in the Caribbean and North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems” (CLME+ Project, 2015-2020). The CLME+ Project is executed by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) in close collaboration with a large number of global, regional and national-level partners.
