Northern Brazil Caribbean red snapper - hook & line and pot/trap

Primary tabs

Overview

The Northern Brazil Caribbean red snapper FIP aims to develop and implement a management plan for the fishery/stock based on defining clear objectives for management. Work will be done to define a stock assessment method and to verify the current status of the stock in relation to reference points. A strategy will be defined to monitor the stock and a mechanism of feed-back that allows decision-makers to rapidly change fishing intensity when adverse situations are identified.

The FIP is also working to identify the existence of one or more snapper stocks on the North and Northeast coasts.

A study which will conclude with a technical report identifying and characterizing the types of substrates as well as the structure of the benthic ecosystem and demersal fishing in Snapper areas and their level of susceptibility to fishing traps is another goal of this FIP hopes to achieve.

In addition, the FIP aims to develop and implement a clear strategy to force the government management and monitoring system to adopt effective measures, set procedures and modify those approaches that do not currently represent the best practices, and also to ensure that management plan designed by the FIP stakeholders will be discussed and adopted by the fisheries management committee (CPG).
