Ecosystem based adaptation approach to Caribbean spiny lobster fisheries - CLME+ HUB

    Ecosystem based adaptation approach to Caribbean spiny lobster fisheries

Brief Description:
To increase the regional and national level capacities towards sustainability and climate resilience of the Caribbean Spiny lobster fishery in SICA countries by establishing integrated, enhanced and harmonized governance arrangements, enhancing fisheries data, and curtail IUU fishing. Much of the effort in achieving this goal is aligned with the adoption and the implementation of a revised Caribbean Lobster Regional Management Plan. We will refine and adapt OIRSAs existing electronic traceability system, adopting it for the spiny lobster fishery. There is already a regional traceability working group that is currently facilitating this process. This project will pilot at least 1 full electronic traceability system (boat to buyer) in the industrial fishery and partial electronic traceability (plant to buyer) for the artisanal lobster fishery. Each system will be based on a regionally approved criterion to capture specific Key Data Elements (KDEs) which already exist.

Aumentar las capacidades a nivel regional y nacional hacia la sostenibilidad y la resiliencia clim谩tica de la pesquer铆a de langosta espinosa del Caribe en los pa铆ses del SICA mediante el establecimiento de acuerdos de gobernanza integrados, mejorados y armonizados, mejorando los datos pesqueros y reduciendo la pesca INDNR. Gran parte del esfuerzo para lograr este objetivo est谩 alineado con la adopci贸n e implementaci贸n de un Plan de Manejo Regional de Langosta del Caribe revisado. Refinaremos y adaptaremos el sistema de trazabilidad electr贸nico existente de OIRSA, adopt谩ndolo para la pesquer铆a de langosta espinosa. Ya existe un grupo de trabajo regional sobre trazabilidad que actualmente est谩 facilitando este proceso. Este proyecto pondr谩 a prueba al menos 1 sistema de trazabilidad electr贸nico completo (barco al comprador) en la pesquer铆a industrial y trazabilidad electr贸nica parcial (de la planta al comprador) para la pesca artesanal de langosta. Cada sistema se basar谩 en un criterio aprobado regionalmente para capturar elementos de datos clave (KDE) espec铆ficos que ya existen.
