The Sub-Regional Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management (EAFM) Plan for Managing Transboundary Fisheries in the Sulu-Sulawesi Seascape has been developed to enable the Sulu-Sulawesi Marine Ecoregion (SSME) to achieve a common fisheries management vision by 2030. The plan is the first known sub-regional EAFM plan in fisheries management literature and acknowledges the power that can be harnessed between regional management actions and those of national and local efforts.
