.    Strengthening Fisheries and Aquaculture Governance in the Bahamas

Brief Description:
Capacity building, training and awareness building activities were carried out for relevant authorities, and a functional FISMIS was created. Various workshops were held to ensure the widest possible participation of stakeholders in the development of a new policy and legal framework for fisheries and aquaculture for the country. Processes to establish aquaculture businesses were developed and assessments of the economic potential for aquaculture development and the socio-economic impact of recreational fisheries were carried out. Additional resources were mobilized in order to support on-going aquaculture development assistance and an increased commitment to sustainable fisheries and aquaculture development was built.
