1st meeting of the Fisheries Data and Statistics Working Group (FDS WG) Barbados, 14-17 May 2018 – Matrix for the Characterisation of Fishing Activities
The matrix provides users with a tool to describe a fishing unit across multiple dimensions or characteristics of scale. The flexible nature of the matrix means that the fishing unit being assessed can either be an entire fishery/fleet, a part of it, or an individual vessel/ fisher. This flexibility allows the matrix to be applied to diverse types of fishing activity around the world. Applying the matrix generates an aggregate score for the given unit under assessment, with relevance for discussions of scale. A given fishing unit may have characteristics typically associated with both smaller-scale and larger-scale fisheries, so many will receive lower scores in some categories and higher scores in others.

The purpose of this outline document is to develop a shared vision for the Full Sized Project which is key an objective of the PDF-B project. Reviewing the Concept Paper the key features of the Full Sized Project are:
– Through the mechanism of the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis, to characterise and analyse the root and underlying causes of transboundary issues relating to the management of marine resources in the CLME and develop and agree on a Strategic Action Programme to address those causes (component 2 TDA).
– Compilation and sharing of existing sources of information required for good governance of marine resources, and identification and filling of knowledge gaps (component 2 TDA).
– Establishing a culture of networking and cooperation among the countries for management of marine resources, focusing on existing institutions and structures rather than creating new ones (component 3. SAP development).
– Establishment of a monitoring and evaluation framework for the environmental’ status of the CLME in line with the ecosystem management approach and SAP implementation (component 3 SAP development).
– Create successes that serve as examples of how countries can collaborate to manage transboundary marine resources through ‘Strengthening by doing’ (component 4 Demonstration projects)

A Fisheries Ecosystem-based approach to the development of Transboundary Diagnostic Analyses and a region-wide Strategic Action Programme
A preliminary Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) for the Caribbean LME and adjacent North Brazil Shelf LME was developed during the PDF B phase of the CLME project. Given the complexity and diversity of the region in terms of its biogeophysical, socioeconomic, legislative and cultural characteristics, a sub-regional approach to assessing the status of the region’s living marine resources was selected. For this purpose, the CLME Area was subdivided in 3 geographic subregions: (i) Insular Caribbean subregion; (ii) Central & South America subregion; and (iii) Brazil-Guyanas subregion. However, the updating of the TDA’s under the Full-Sized Project implementation phase used an alternative –innovative- approach: rather than using the physical limits of the 3 former geographic subregions, ecological “limits” corresponding to 3 “fishery ecosystems” considered key to the sustainable management of the shared living marine resources in the Wider Caribbean were used as the departure point for the development of the updated TDAs.

The primary purpose of this Handbook is to serve as a practical guide to innovators of governanceand socioeconomics in Large Marine Ecosystem (LME) projects. Based on a Global EnvironmentalFacility IW:LEARN-sponsored workshop for 11 LME programs,1 the Handbook is designed to beused in short courses and workshops on governance and socioeconomics science to support theecosystem approach to marine resources management

The objective of this report is to review the existing global experiences relating to the establishment of strategic alliances and formal partnerships for improved management, in particular within the context of ocean governance, the management of shared living marine and the effective and collaborative implementation of Strategic Action Programmes within Large Marine Ecosystems. The review considers and discusses the management and governance options already available and proven in various scenarios and marine ecosystems around the world that might with a view to identifying examples and practices which could be adapted and adopted by the CLME+ region and its stakeholders, while respecting the sovereign rights of each participating State.

A video introduction to Future Fishers – an NGO in Trinidad and Tobago that seeks to empower local stakeholders to understand the value and benefits of managing coastal and marine resources sustainably
Future Fishers is a non-governmental organisation; founded in 2017 and based on the northeast coast of Trinidad, that seeks to empower local stakeholders to understand the value and benefits of managing coastal and marine resources sustainably.
In 2019, Future Fishers undertook an assessment of market and environmental vulnerabilities and recommendations for small-scale production of smoked and salted fish on Trinidad’s East coast, including the communities of Guayaguayare, Mayaro and Toco. Despite COVID-19 restrictions, Future Fishers was able to do great work on this project and completed it in July 2020.
Their work was made possible with a small grant from the Caribbean Sea Innovation Fund (CarSIF) facility, which was established by the Caribbean natural Resources Institute (CANARI) to address priority needs and actions in the Caribbean on marine and coastal resources governance and management. The small grants are a key component of the regional three-year project, Powering Innovations in Civil Society and Enterprises for Sustainability (PISCES) in the Caribbean which is being funded by the European Union.

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.
