Language: English
Description:

The Sustainable Fisheries Management Plan for Fisheries Management Area (FMA) 716, Indonesia is an Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management (EAFM) Plan that has been developed through a collaborative and participatory multi-stakeholder process. The plan was developed and finalized through a series of collaborative workshops, including but not limited to the June 2017 “Integrated Stakeholder Consultation Workshop” conducted in Manado, Indonesia and the February 2019 “Review and Finalization Workshop for a Proposed Sustainable Fisheries Management Plan for Indonesia Fisheries Management Area 716,” conducted at the Indonesia Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) in Jakarta, Indonesia.

This document provides a detailed strategic planning framework to ensure ecologically sustainable management of FMA 716’s tuna fisheries, including “true” (e.g., yellow fin, bigeye and skipjack) and neritic (e.g., frigate, bullet, longtail; kawakawa; King and Spanish mackerels) and small pelagic fisheries. This plan is proposed for adoption and implementation by MMAF and relevant national and provincial government agencies, the Fisheries Management Committee (FMC), and non-governmental partners focused on fisheries management and biodiversity conservation in Indonesia. This plan complements and supports MMAF Ministerial Decrees and issuances for fisheries management for FMA 716 such as the Fisheries Management Plan (FMP) for FMA 716 through Ministerial Decree No. 83/KEPMEN–KP/2016 and the Fisheries Management Plan for Tuna, Skipjack and Tuna-like species through Ministerial Decree No. 107/KEPMEN–KP/2015.
