INACTIVE Lower Mekong Delta Kien Giang multispecies - trawl

Primary tabs

Overview

Reason for Inactivity 
Lack of stakeholder support

NOTE: This FIP is inactive.

Currently, Kien Giang is the most important marine capture fishery in Vietnam, the trawl fishery particularly plays a crucial role in terms of number of vessels as well as in annual catch volume. On average, this fishery accounts for more than 80% of landing volume and provides a large number of livelihoods to local and neighboring provinces.

However, the fishery is being faced with a number of issues related to management (monitoring, control, surveillance), particularly recruitment overfishing, growth overfishing, social issues (increasing conflicts among fishing fleets, poor management of labor force). There is an urgent need for solutions which promote good practices in managing and operating the fishery while the central and local government are implementing "top-down" approaches in fisheries management. Forming an alliance within actors along the supply chain should strengthen the participation of all relevant stakeholders in management plan development and implementation.

The FIP is focusing on the three main areas including (1) fishery resource and environment; (2) fishery economics and (3) social aspects. The objective of this multi species FIP is to achieve the Global Standard for Responsible Supply of fishmeal and fish oil (IFFO RS).
