Strengthening national fishery statistics systems and maximizing their use for fisheries planning and management is one of the priority goals identified during the ASEAN-SEAFDEC Millennium Conference in 2001. This was reflected in the Resolution and Plan of Action adopted at the Conference, with Resolutions 4 and 7 stipulating the importance of improving the understanding/

knowledge of fisheries and aquaculture through harmonization of standards and capacity building, better presentation of statistics and information for various user groups taking into consideration of reduction of disparity among countries.

Following these policy directives, SEAFDEC has initiated a project aiming at improving fishery statistics systems and related mechanisms in the region, under the Special 5-year programme (2002- 2005). Since then, the importance of fishery statistics has been well recognized, not only by SEAFDEC and its Member Countries, but also by ASEAN and FAO,

many joint activities were implemented in collaboration with these institutions. The recent membership of SEAFDEC in the Coordinating Working Party on Fishery Statistics (CWP) and the Fisheries Resources Monitoring Systems (FIRMS) are further steps toward the harmonization of standards both among ASEAN Countries and at the global level.

This article will highliight activities and achieve- ment of the project in improving Fishery Statistics in the Asean Region from 2002 to 2005.

Improving Fishery Statistics Systems in CLMV Countries

With the goal of strengthening the capacity of fishery statistics systems in the ASEAN region, human resource development exercises have recently been conducted, notably in the four new ASEAN Member Countries – Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Vietnam (known as the CLMV Countries). This has been done with the support

BOX 1 – Activities Conducted in Cambodia

The national workshop on Fishery Statistics was held in Phnom Penh, from 8 to 10 September 2003. Its aim was to address the needs and directions for improving fishery statistics at both national and local levels. Special emphasis was placed on building human capacity, through addressing issues such as why statistics are required and the purposes for which they would be used; the types of statistics required and the information required, and means of collecting processing and using statistics.

The first on-site training workshop on Fishery Statistics was organized in Siem Reap province from 17 to 20 December 2003. The training highlighted aspects related to practical approaches for data collection, methodologies and techniques to ensure the quality of statistical data and to improve the national fishery statistical system on a short-term basis. The second on-site training was held in Sihanoukville from 23 to 29 March 2004. The training was conducted as a follow-up action on previous activities aimed at introducing data collection methodology at fish landing sites, focusing this time on marine fisheries.

At the end of the activities, the participants had a clearer understanding of how to improve data systems for fishery statistics in Cambodia, both for inland and marine fisheries. It is expected that the national data system for fishery statistics in the country will soon be comprehensively reformulated, including a revision and elaboration of data types, data items, priority of requirements, purpose, methods for data collection, frequency, and responsible agencies.

of the ASEAN Foundation (Japan-ASEAN Solidarity Fund). These activities also aimed to reduce technical disparities among SEAFDEC Member Countries through the mobilization of existing regional experience and skills.

Several activities have been initiated, starting with the first ASEAN-SEAFDEC Regional Technical Consultation (RTC) on Fishery Statistics organized in Chiang Mai, Thailand, in June 2003, in order to develop directions and plan for capacity building of fishery statistics in the region, considering both institutional and human resource aspects. The outcome of the Consultation provided the basis, directions and plan for the forthcoming implementation of the project, including national workshops and two on-site trainings for each of the CLMV Countries.

Following-up the recommendations made at the first RTC, a national workshop on fishery statistics was thus organized in each of the CLMV Countries, clarifying needs and directions for the improvement of the fishery statistics system in response to national fisheries specificities and existing capacity. The outcomes of each national workshop concluded issues and problem areas as well as directions and approaches for the improvement of each national fishery statistics system.

BOX 2 – Activities Conducted in Lao PDR

The national workshop on Fishery Statistics was held in Champasack, from 25 to 28 September 2003. Its objectives were to review the current status of fishery statistics in Lao PDR in order to help stakeholders review, clarify and possibly develop a national fishery statistics system, and the necessary support and underlying mechanisms. Through its proposed follow-up actions, the workshop came up with suggestions for responsible agencies in charge to solve identified problems and ultimately to improve fishery statistics in Lao PDR.

The first on-site training on Fishery Statistics was organized from 29 October to 1 November 2003, in Savannakhet. The training was aimed at improving fishery statistics in Lao PDR, emphasizing the formulation and establishment of data systems for inland fishery statistics in the country. Major outcomes from the training were draft concepts and definition of key terminologies for inland fishery statistics, draft classifications of inland fishery statistics, a minimum data system for inland fishery statistics including data types and items, and future follow-up actions and activities. The second on- site training on Fishery Statistics, organized from 8 to 12 March 2004 in Vientiane, aimed at providing concepts, design and planning as well as appropriate data collecting methodologies and practices for inland capture fisheries, such as landing site surveys and sample surveys.

BOX 3 – Activities Conducted in Myanmar

The national workshop on Fishery Statistics was held in Yangon from 1 to 3 October 2003 with the aim of reviewing the current status of fishery statistics in Myanmar in order to improve and develop the fishery statistics system by identifying needs and requirements to be addressed during the two subsequent on-site.

The first on-site training workshop was held in Yangon, from 11 to 14 February 2004. It aimed at improving the fishery statistics system in Myanmar, emphasizing the design and planning of data systems for fishery statistics both in inland and marine fisheries, and in aquaculture. The second on- site training, held at the same place from 25 to 30 May 2004, aimed at introducing methodologies such as fishing community surveys for in-shore fisheries, including their potential application and usage for the management of in-shore fisheries. It also aimed at providing the concepts, processes and basic skills required in the conduct of the fishing community survey for in-shore fisheries through planning, field practice, data collection, processing, analysis and reporting. In sum, the training attempted to clarify potential ways to incorporate fishing community surveys for in-shore fisheries into the national fishery statistics system of Myanmar.

As a result of the activities conducted in the country, a draft conceptual framework for a national fishery data and information management system was formulated. Recommended future activities for the improvement of Myanmar fishery statistics include:

1. To review the terminologies and their definitions and concepts used in the existing system;

2. To undertake studies to verify the accuracy of the existing information; and

3. To emphasize small-scale in-depth studies at a selected site covering the requirements of all sub-sectors of fisheries.

Once the problems and priority issues of each country had been identified, the participants – fishery administrators, managers and statisticians – gained a better understanding of the needs and areas for improvement of their respective national fishery statistics system. The second phase was then to train them on statistical data collection, analysis and reporting of quality fishery statistics in line with the gap identified during two subsequent national on-site trainings.

During these exercises, a draft regional handbook

on collecting fishery statistics for inland and coastal fisheries was used as a reference document. The handbook is to be revised accordingly, based on experience gained through the national trainings organized in the CLMV countries and the recommendation made at the second RTC. It will be used in future activities to promote capacity building for the improvement of fishery statistics system in other ASEAN member countries.

BOX 4 - Activities Conducted in Vietnam

The national workshop on Fishery Statistics was organized in Hanoi from 15 to 17 October 2003. With the goal of promoting a sustainable system for national fishery statistics, the workshop recommended several immediate future actions.

These were 1) to establish a national taskforce for fishery statistics with identified tasks, and 2) to conduct human capacity building through the promotion of cooperation at national as well as regional and international levels on a few identified key areas.

The first on-site training was held in Nha Trang from 26 to 29 February 2004 while the second on-site training was conducted in Ho Chi Minh City from 18 to 21 May 2004. At the end of the on-site training workshops, the following outputs were achieved:

1. A common understanding and knowledge on fishery statistics system among participants from various agencies and provinces concerned

2. Enhanced awareness of participants on policy, strategies and plan for improvement of fishery statistics by relevant agencies

3. concepts and definitions of key terminologies and classifications of national fishery statistics

4. Strengthened practical capacity of officers responsible for the design and planning of fishery statistics data system, including survey design, and 5. Identified immediate future follow-up actions and activities for further

improvement of fishery statistics in Vietnam.

Despite these positive outcomes, the improvement of the fishery statistics system in Vietnam is still facing many difficulties. The training concluded by identifying these problems and constraints and also by proving recommendations on future actions to be conducted to improve the system.

The first set of on-site training workshops on fishery statistics was conducted from October 2003 to March 2004, scheduled according to the readiness of each of the four countries. The training methodology used was developed on the basis of issues and problem areas identified, and elaborated upon during the earlier national workshop. The outcomes from the first on-site trainings were used as a framework for the conduct of the second set of trainings. These were organized from March to May 2004, and were primarily aimed at introducing field surveys and practices in line with national requirements (such as fish landing sites surveys and fishing community surveys).

Through the series of activities conducted at both national and regional levels, the project has been able to enhance the understanding of how national fishery statistics systems can be improved through human resource development activities. Although most of the actions have focused on developing the capacity of CLMV countries, the other member countries have been closely and continuously involved in sharing their expertise and experience.

Supporting Sound Statistics Systems in the Region The second RTC on Fishery Statistics was conducted from 15 to 18 June 2004. Its aim was to follow up the implementation of capacity-building activities by reviewing and evaluating the results of project implementation. It also aimed at identifying further priority activities to be undertaken for improvement of fishery statistics systems in the ASEAN region.

The Consultation concluded that actions should be further conducted with priority given to the ASEAN region as a whole. It came up with directions and considerations for future implementation as well as priority actions/activities to be undertaken on fishery

in need of further elaboration...”

35 Volume 3 Number 1: 2005

Yet, as many issues are covered in the regional guidelines for responsible fisheries management in Southeast Asia, the guiding principles given are still broad and in need of further elaboration. The project is trying to fill that gap, especially in regard to actual implementation in order to clarify a clear direction for actions that will improve fishery statistics for the countries in the region.

One of the project’s achievements was to develop the Regional Guidelines for Fisheries Statistics in Southeast Asia, which substantiate issues related to fishery statistics as included in the regional guidelines for responsible fisheries management.

These regional guidelines are envisaged to provide an important framework for formulation of ASEAN- SEAFDEC collaborative programmes on fishery statistics and information as well as to support cooperation among the countries in Southeast Asia and regional or international organizations.

Harmonizing Standards: Improving the Compilation and Production of the Fishery StatisticalBulletin of Southeast Asia

The aim of this exercise was to improve the compilation and production of the Fishery Statistics Bulletin for the South China Sea Area, so that in terms of area coverage the ASEAN region is better represented. The new geographical coverage of SEAFDEC Fishery Statistical Bulletin, now know as the Fishery Statistical Bulletin of Southeast Asia, will from now on includes areas of relevance for all ASEAN Member Countries. Work has also been accomplished

in terms of scope, timeliness of statistics, and the global framework has been revised, with classifications, formats and definitions reviewed to be consistent with international standards, such as with FAO fishery statistics.

Under the new framework, the minimum requirements for a national statistics system have been set with the aim of providing a target for priority actions and improving national statistics in a cost- effective manner. The adoption of these minimum requirements is a follow-up of the FAO-SEAFDEC regional workshop for the improvement of fishery data and information collection systems, held in February 2005. In addition, there will be a streamlining process of the reporting of fishery statistics by Member Countries to both FAO and SEAFDEC.

Improving Regional Networking on Fishery Statistics

The establishment of an ASEAN Network of Fishery Statistics has this year been endorsed by the SEAFDEC Council and ASEAN. The network will be mobilized as a collaborative working mechanism among Member Countries and organizations concerned, so as to enhance cooperation in the development and improvement of fishery statistics and information in the region. The network’s responsibilities include supporting the compilation of regional and international fishery statistics as well as being involved in the provision of technical inputs to initiatives related to fishery statistics and information.

Box 6 - Priority Actions/Activities Covering Statistics for Inland/Coastal Fisheries (cont.)

Building up Regional and Global Collaborations and Partnerships

Considering the benefit to Member Countries, namely bringing the quality of their fishery statistics into line with international standards, SEAFDEC became a member of the Coordinating Working Party on Fishery Statistics (CWP) in 2004. Membership of CWP is considered beneficial to Member Countries, as it allows them to reflect requirements from the region when developing global common definitions, classifications and standards for the collection of fishery statistics. Member Countries will also be able to obtain first-class technical advice on fishery statistics matters through this connection with CWP.

2004 was an important year for the region, as SEAFDEC also entered into a partnership with the

Fishery Resources Monitoring System (FIRMS). Such partnerships help in promoting sustainable management of fisheries in the ASEAN region by improving Member Countries data and information systems in line with FIRMS standards, and by

BOX 7. FAO-SEAFDEC Regional Workshop for the Improvement of Fishery Data and Information Collection Systems

In early 2005, SEAFDEC and FAO took progressive steps together, starting with the FAO- SEAFDEC regional workshop for the improvement of fishery data and information collection systems in Southeast Asia in February 2005. During the workshop, a number of important issues were raised to support the implementation of SEAFDEC Resolution and Plan of Action and FAO Strategy for improving information on status and trends of capture fisheries.

As the main input to the event, updates on the current status of fishery statistics collection and reporting systems in the region were given. Based on these, required follow-up actions were suggested with a view to promoting the implementation of Strategy-STF. The most immediate action identified was the needs for capacity building to facilitate the improvement of fishery statistics and information that will in turn support the development and implementation of sound policies and sustainable management in the region.

The outcomes of the workshop reflect the strong mutual interests of FAO and SEAFDEC for the benefit of the countries in the region, on which directions for the development of a programme work and activities of parties concerned have been developed. This includes the formulation of the next phase of the project on the “improvement of fishery statistics systems and mechanisms”.

“The new geographical coverage of SEAFDEC Fishery Statistical Bulletin, now know as the Fishery Statistical Bulletin of Southeast Asia, will from now on includes areas of relevance for all ASEAN Member Countries”

“...the minimum requirements for

a national statistics system have

been set with the aim of providing

a target for priority actions and

improving national statistics in a

cost-effective manner”
