Area 71 (Pacific, Western Central)

Overview

What is a Prospective FIP?
Prospective FIPs intend to meet the requirements for active FIPs within one year. These projects are posted on FisheryProgress to help users identify opportunities to support developing FIPs and prevent the start of duplicate FIPs. Prospective FIPs are not yet demonstrating progress toward sustainability.

The FIP Vung Tau has been initiated in November 2015, officially recognised by provincial authorites since July 2016, by the Round Table of Fishmeal producers of Ba Ria - Vung Tau province and their clients - Compound Feed Manufacturers in Vietnam. The project owner is The Fishmeal  & Fish Oil Association of Ba Ria - Vung Tau province. 

Target species is in discussion progress with stakeholders.

Overview

The national-level Indonesia Snapper Grouper FIP led by ADI will merge three site-level basic snapper-grouper FIPs (Aru, Makassar Strait, and Java Sea) and is aiming to develop solutions for snapper and grouper fishery management and other issues that can only be addressed effectively at the national level and thus will support the work of existing FIPs.

This FIP will be a comprehensive FIP and will address the objectives originally outlined in three basic FIPs as well as additional issues identified in the MSC Pre-Assessment produced by The Nature Conservancy to support the TNC Indonesia deepwater groundfish - dropline, longline, trap and gillnet FIP.   The ADI-led Indonesia Snapper Grouper FIP is aligned and a complementary effort to the TNC-led snapper grouper FIP.

This FIP will focus on six snapper species (Lutjanus malabaricus, L. eryphtropterus, L. sebae, Pristipmoides multidens, P. typus and Pinjalo pinjalo) and 10 grouper species caught in Indonesian Waters (WPPs) using bottom longline, drop line, trap and gillnet.

Overview

The FIP is the Dongwon Industries Pacific Ocean tuna purse seine (FAD-associated sets) fishery targeting skipjack (Katsuwonus pelamis), bigeye (Thunnus obesus) and yellowfin (T. albacares) tunas. The fishing vessels are flagged to the Republic of Korea and Kiribati and operate in the western and central Pacific Ocean (WCPO) high seas and the following Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZs): PNA countries (Federated States of Micronesia, Palau, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu and Tokelau as a party to the Palau Arrangement) and the Cook Islands. The fishery is managed regionally by the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC).

The FIP considers the following Units of Assessment (9 in total):

  • Western and Central Pacific Ocean (WCPO) stocks of skipjack, bigeye and yellowfin, caught by purse seine on FAD associated sets and managed by national management of PNA countries and regionally by WCPFC (three UoAs).
  • Western and Central Pacific Ocean (WCPO) stocks of skipjack, bigeye and yellowfin, caught by purse seine on FAD associated sets and managed by Cook Islands national management and regionally by WCPFC (three UoAs).

This FIP covers the Yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares) and Skipjack tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis)  from High Seas Pocket 1 (HPS1) in the western central pacific ocean, caught by Philippine registered vessels with purse seine anchored FAD sets. 

The general objective of this FIP is to have an MSC full assessment by 2024. This FIP will specifically focus on the following:

  • To work on the Harvest Strategy, and Harvest Control Rules and Tools in order to maintain a sustainable stock of Yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares) and Skipjack tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis) in the target area
  • To reduce the environmental impact especially of dislodged FADs which is about half of the deployed
  • To improve the availability of fishery performance and management actions, and the enforcement of sanctions to non-compliant fishers

Red swimming crab (Portunus haanii) in the southeastern region of Vietnam is a significant contributor to crab fisheries in Vietnam. The red swimming crab fisheries operate mostly in Binh Thuan, Vung Tau, and Tien Giang provinces, which are mainly raw material sources for crab processing plants in southern parts of Vietnam. The total estimated catches in 2019 reached 14.2 thousand MT. Based on this significant contribution, the Vietnam Crab Club (VCC), under VASEP, has decided to scope out & launch a FIP for this crab fishery. 

Key information for this fishery:

Species: Red Swimming Crab (Portunus haanii (Stimpson, 1858))

Fishing Methods: Crab traps & small-scale gillneters

Geographic scope: Binh Thuan, Vung Tau & Tien Giang provinces

Locations: FAO Major Fishing Areas 71 (Western & Central Pacific) within Vietnam EEZ waters

Estimated volumns: 14,200 MT in 2019

Overview

The FIP is the Kiribati purse seine tuna fishery (Kiribati Fish Ltd operated vessels). The fishery targets skipjack (Katsuwonus pelamis), yellowfin (Thunnus albacares) and bigeye tuna (Thunnus obesus) through free-school and FAD-associated purse seine sets. The fleet of ten purse seine vessels are flagged to China and operate mainly in the Kiribati EEZ, other PNA countries’ EEZs and potentially the high seas. The fishery is managed regionally by the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC).

The Units of Assessment (UoAs) are:

  • Western and Central Pacific Ocean (WCPO) stocks of skipjack, bigeye and yellowfin, caught by purse seine on FAD associated sets and managed by relevant national management (Kiribati) and regionally by WCPFC (three UoAs);
  • Western and Central Pacific Ocean (WCPO) stocks of skipjack, bigeye and yellowfin, caught by purse seine on non-associated sets (free-school) and managed by relevant national (Kiribati) management and regionally by WCPFC (three UoAs).

Overview

The Indonesia Western and Central Pacific Ocean yellowfin tuna - handline (IPNLF) FIP, aims to meet sustainability criteria for MSC certification through a process of implementing a Fishery Improvement Project, and assist these fisheries to better meet international market requirements. An MSC pre-assessment was completed in 2018 (Hough Associates), a FIP action plan was developed for associated Units of Assessement (UoAs) in November 2019, and the FIP is subject to regular review.

Together, the International Pole & Line Foundation (IPNLF) with FIP partners PT. Deho Canning and PT. Citraraja Ampat Canning (CRA), are driving the FIP with fishery stakeholders. An assessment was conducted on PT. Deho Canning and PT. CRA supply-chains that identified at least 2 Units of Assessment (UoAs) in Sorong and Bitung, to implement a FIP and move towards MSC certification. A national FIP Steering Committee, led by the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) via a decree issued by the Director of Fishery Resource Management (2016), which is a platform for all tuna FIPs in Indonesia to engage with government. The FIP Steering Committee meets regularly and provides a vehicle for cross-sector collaboration to achieve sustainability objectives. 

Indonesia has a long tradition of catching tuna using handlines. Through the FIP, PT Deho Canning, PT CRA and IPNLF are committed to promoting and supporting these fisheries, which are widely regarded as one of the most ecologically and socially responsible methods to harvest tuna. Handline tuna fisheries are typically ‘green-rated' by NGOs and form a core component of many major buyers’ sourcing commitments.

The FIP aims to increase knowledge about and application of international sustainability standards, to improve cross-sector collaboration, enhance fishery transparency and traceability, and advance the implementation of national and regional conservation management measures. Through this initiative, IPNLF, PT Deho Canning, PT Citraraja Ampat Canning, and its partners will demonstrate the benefits of a well-managed Indonesian fishery for food security, livelihoods, and sustainable businesses.
