Caribbean Billfish Project (CBP) Project Document

The objective of this Caribbean Billfish Project (CBP) is to develop business plans for one or more long-term pilot projects aimed at sustainable management and conservation of billfish within the Western Central Atlantic Ocean. The divergence in value between the commercial and recreational subsectors represents a significant ‘entry point’ and opportunity for conservation and value creation which this project aims to exploit. The completed business plans will incorporate the economic, technical and financial rationale and feasibility to attract investment involving private and public capital. The project also contribute significantly to regional capacity building, information sharing systems and management and conservation planning for billfish. The Executing Agency of this subproject is described as “WECAFC/FAO”.

Caribbean Sea Ecosystem Assessment

This assessment will attempt to contribute to the scientific basis of the decision-making framework in which policy and management decisions are taken and governance arrangements designed. The assessment will also establish a consolidated baseline of data and analysis relating to the condition of the Caribbean Sea, for use in periodic monitoring. It will also serve as an example of an approach to integrated assessment of ecosystems, and to inter-governmental/civic society/academic collaboration.

Caribbean Spiny Lobster Larval Dispersal Patterns and Larval Retention Areas Map

Larval drift determines the source of recruitment to the fishery, and it is thought that maintaining the lobster population at a particular site may depend on larvae arriving from distant localities. The drift of larvae across political boundaries creates a strong link among the countries that share this transboundary resource.
