Project Title: Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries - Best and Future Practices
The Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries (EAF) is a holistic strategy for managing fisheries and marine resources, emphasizing the importance of considering the entire ecosystem. This TOR outlines the framework for implementing best and future practices of the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries.
The ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF) is a holistic approach to managing fisheries and marine resources by taking into account the entire ecosystem of the species being managed. EAF is designed to maintain ecosystems in a healthy, productive, and resilient condition so they can provide the services humans want and need. EAF is a more efficient and effective way to manage fisheries and marine resources by considering the full range of trade-offs, interactions, and cumulative effects. The goal of EAF is to maintain ecosystems in a healthy, productive, and resilient condition so they can provide the services humans want and need. EAF is a way to better manage resources, and it provides a sound scientific basis for ecosystem-based fisheries management.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has produced guidelines to supplement the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, which highlight the many benefits that can be achieved by adopting an ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF) and elaborate several agreed principles and concepts relating to EAF. These guidelines attempt to make EAF operational by recognizing that this approach is a way to implement many of the provisions of the Code and achieve sustainable development in a fisheries context1. They guide how to translate the economic, social, and ecological policy goals and aspirations of sustainable development into operational objectives, indicators, and performance measures.
EAF will require that current fisheries management processes include a broader range of users of marine ecosystems (including both extractive and non-extractive users) in deliberations and decision-making and, through improved participatory processes, broader assessment and consensus among users, whose objectives frequently compete. The process will need to take into account more effectively the interactions between fisheries and ecosystems, and the fact that both are affected by natural long-term variability and other, non-fishery uses. Most importantly, the approach aims to ensure that future generations will benefit from the full range of goods and services that ecosystems can provide by dealing with issues in a much more holistic way, rather than by focusing on only certain target species or species groups, as has often been the case until now.
The best and future practice of the ecosystem to fisheries (EAF) involves a comprehensive and adaptive strategy that integrates ecological, social, and economic considerations. Here are some key practices for implementing and enhancing the ecosystem approach for fisheries
The primary objectives of this TOR are as follows:
- To implement and enhance the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries.
- To promote sustainable development in a fisheries context.
- To translate economic, social, and ecological policy goals into operational objectives, indicators, and performance measures.
4. Scope of Work
The scope of work includes, but is not limited to:
- Conducting Integrated Ecosystem Assessments (IEA).
- Applying precautionary management practices.
- Developing and implementing Ecosystem-based Fishery Management Plans.
