Fisheries Catch Documentation and Traceability in Southeast Asia: Technical Concept and Specifications (CDT 201)

The “CDT201″outlines USAID Oceans’ technical approach and specifications to designing, testing, and implementing a CDTS with public and private partners in Southeast Asia. This document follows USAID Oceans’ Fisheries Catch Documentation and Traceability in Southeast Asia: Conceptual Overview, also referred to as the CDT101, released in 2016. This technical overview serves as a longer, more in-depth technical addendum to the non-technical conceptual overview, geared towards technical experts and service providers, academia, and other interested stakeholders including (but not limited to): U.S. government counterparts, including the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Department of the Interior; commercial stakeholders operating within the seafood supply chain; national regulators; private sector technology partners; international fishing and shipping industry partners; seafood certification organizations; technical and scientific organizations; and academia. By releasing this document, USAID Oceans hopes to clearly and transparently share its proposed technical approach and specifications relating to the CDTS.
