The Southeast Asia Fisheries Management Planning Workshop: Taking the Sub-Regional Approach was successfully conducted by the Oceans and Fisheries Partnership (USAID Oceans) and the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC), 23-25 August 2017 at Jasmine City Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand. The workshop was attended by 92 participants composed of 39 delegates and 10 countries from SEAFDEC and Coral Triangle Initiative on Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security (CTI-CFF) member countries, representatives of the implementing and technical partners of USAID Oceans and other international/regional organizations undertaking fisheries management work in the Southeast Asia region.

This workshop was designed to help enable the SEAFDEC countries to respond to such endorsement by focusing on transboundary fisheries in the following three “sub-regions:”

  1. Sulu Sulawesi Seas (Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines);
  2. Gulf of Thailand (Malaysia-Thailand; Cambodia-Vietnam) and South of China Sea (Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, the Philippines and Singapore); and
  3. Andaman Sea (Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar and Thailand)
