International training course on Ecosystems Approach to Fisheries Management
The EAFM or Ecosystems Approach to Fisheries Management is a training course for fisheries managers, coastal managers, researchers, etc. It represents a move away from fisheries management systems that focus only on the sustainable harvest of target species, towards systems and decision making processes that balance environmental well-being within improved governance framework. The EAFM Module includes: threats and issues in current fisheries management; fisheries management and the ecosystem approach; the whats and whys of EAFM; principles of EAFM; moving towards EAFM; EAFM plans: the link between policy and action; and the EAFM process overview. Organized by FFTC and the Marine Resources and Research Division of the Philippine Council for Agriculture Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (MRRD-PCAARRD), this international training course is attended by fisheries experts from Cambodia, Thailand and Taiwan together with other Filipino local participants.
