4) Regional Training on Larval Fish Identification in collaboration with UNEP-GEP
Activity 2: Supporting of Actual Survey, Data Collection and Data Analysis
1) Data Collection by MV SEAFDEC2and National Research vessel : in Myanmar, Thailand, The Philippines ( Minanao Sea )
2) Analysis of fish larvae, nutrients and other
3) Develop/ modify of sampling gear and methods for data collection such as Bongo net, Nueston net
Activity 3: Develop and promote fish handling and preservation technology
1) Observation and testing of new technology from Japanese on fish handling and preservation technology as called Liquid ice on MV SEAFDE2 2) Develop the appropriated technology for fish
handling and preservation for squid fisheries 3) Promotion of fish handling and preservation
techniques to local fishermen a) Thailand (Rayong Province) b) Cambodia (Sihanoukvilles)
The Onsite Training in Cambodai will be conducted in the 2nd week
Activity 4: Information Dissemination 1) Publications on related subjects
• Guide book for fish handling at Sea
• Drafting the Report on under-utilized resources in untrawlable grounds in the SEA Region
Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
4. PROPOSED ACTIVITIES FOR THE YEAR 2008
Activities Duration Remarks
Activity 1: Workshop and Consultation
The Workshop for evaluation on the potential resources of some economically species on the un-trawlable grounds in the Andaman Sea will be organized. The new findings on the potential fisheries resources in the Andaman sea, relative abundance of some
economically species and reporting will be discussed for further drafting of the final report.
Activity 2: Supporting of Actual Survey, Data Collection, Data Management System and Data Analysis
The collaborative research survey on potential of under-utilized resources in member countries will be conducted in cooperation with the national research program of each member country using of MV SEAFDEC2 (under the cost-shared policy for mv SEAFDEC2) or other national research vessel(s). The survey areas will be focused in the EEZ of member countries and/or trans-bordering areas particularly in un- trawlable grounds. The results from the surveys will be analyzed at the national and regional levels.
Assist member countries on data analysis which related on the fisheries resources on un-trawlable grounds topic as supplementary information for regional analysis and findings.
Data management system for un-trawlable fishery resources for better management in long term will be developed through the discussion with member countries during the semi-workshop.
Human resources development for research work on un-trawlable grounds by specific fishing gears is one of the aim to transfer know-how to SEAFDEC member countries for future implementation through the ship board training/actual survey by MV SEAFDEC2 in member countries.
Activity 3: Develop and promote fishing and fish handling techniques for reduction of post harvest losses
Developing and improving of fishing techniques such as eel pot, shrimp trap, bottom longline for harvesting of under-utilized resources in the un-trawlable grounds.
Experiment of the fish handling and preservation technique particularly high value fishes from un-trawlable grounds will be conducted on the local fishing vessel and research vessels such as mvSEAFDEC2 or others. On-site workshop to promote appropriated fishing techniques and at sea fish handling and preservation technology to the member countries related to the project will also be particularly conducted in linkage with the Se-mi workshop as mentioned in Act. 1.
Activity 4: Production of information packages
Information dissemination though publication and SEAFDEC web-site as are follows:
• Guide book for onboard fish handling and preservation technique for squid and high value fishes
• Potential resources of some economically species on the un- trawlable grounds in the Andaman Sea
The Thirtieth Meeting of the SEAFDEC Program Committee, 26-28 November 2007
• Guide book for responsible fishing technology: Trap, Bottom Longline and its fishing grounds in the Southeast Asian
• Others CD materials/information package Expected Outcomes:
1) Evaluation of the potential resources of some economically species on the un-trawlable grounds in the Andaman Sea covered three countries namely Indonesia, Thailand and Myanmar through the collaborative research program using MV SEAFDEC2 and other research vessels
2) Development and promotion of the appropriated/responsible fishing gears and practices for harvesting of the fisheries resources on the un-trawlable grounds such as trap and bottom longline,
3) Workshop on potential resources of some economically species on the un-trawlable grounds in the Andaman Sea (three countries and SEAFDEC are involved)
4) Develop of the appropriated fish handling at sea to reduce the post-harvest losses
5) Human capacity building on research works concerning harvesting of fish resources on un- trawlable grounds.

Program Title: The Use of Indicators for Sustainable Development and Management of Capture Fisheries in the ASEAN Region
Lead Department: MFRDMD Project Duration: 2006 - 2010 1. INTRODUCTION
The first phase of the project (Identification of Indicators for Sustainable Development and Management of Capture Fisheries in the ASEAN Region) has been accomplished at the end of the year 2005. In this phase countries that had implemented the pilot projects have gained the experiences in identification of indicators for sustainable development and management of the capture fisheries. The main out put is the adopted Regional Guidelines on the Use of Indicators for Sustainable Development and Management of Capture Fisheries in the ASEAN Region. The knowledge and experience gain from the pilot projects have taken as the main inputs of the Guidelines. The follow-up actions are necessary in order to ensure that these beneficial experiences are successfully transferred and implemented in the large scale.
