Vietnam mixed species - trawl

Primary tabs

Overview

The Roundtable of Feed and Fishmeal companies has been initiated by end of 2016 by feed manufacturers and their suppliers to address the most concern of the feed sector regarding responsible sourcing of marine ingredients. In 2017, with support from Ba Ria-Vung Tau provincial People's Committee, Department of Agriculture & Rural Development and its affiliate - Sub-Department of Fisheries, Ba Ria - Vung Tau Fishmeal and Fish Oil Association has been recognised by authorities, a fishery improvement project (hereby called FIP Vung Tau) has been developed since then. In June 2020, FIP Vung Tau registered on FisheryProgress as Prospective FIP for trawl fisheries in Ba Ria - Vung Tau province, with 10 participants (4 feed companies and 6 fishmeal companies in Ba Ria - Vung Tau province). FIP Vung Tau has defined 5 'other species' as target stocks, including Greater lizardfish (Saurida tumbil); Blunt-nose lizardfish (Trachinocephalus myops); Sulphur goatfish (Upeneus sulphureus); Bigeye scad (Selar crumenophthalmus); and Yellowtail scad (Atule mate). Trawl fleets registered with Ba Ria - Vung Tau authorities and ones that land in ports in Ba Ria - Vung Tau that fishmeal producers are sourcing their incoming materials are covered by this FIP. Background studies and data collection for evaluation of PIs will be conducted in the waters under administration of Ba Ria - Vung Tau province.  

FIP Description 

The Roundtable of Feed and Fishmeal companies has been initiated by end of 2016 by feed manufacturers and their suppliers to address the most concern of the feed sector regarding responsible sourcing of marine ingredients.

FIP Objective(s) 

By December 2024, the Vietnam mixed species - trawl FIP (also known as FIP Vung Tau) hopes to achieve following objectives:

  1. Develop multi-species stock assessment guidance
  2. Multi-species stock assessment for Ba Ria - Vung Tau province (hereby called BRVT)
  3. Collect data of BRVT Trawl fisheries
  4. Develop BRVT province ETP species database
  5. Conduct assessment about impacts of trawl fisheries on ETP species in BRVT
  6. Collecting information relating to at-sea garbage disposal and gear loss/retrieval, and associated ghost fishing
  7. Conduct a study about Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems (VMEs) within the waters under the administrative management of BRVT province
  8. Develop habitat management plan for BRVT
  9. Conduct a study about the key ecosystem elements of the UoA
  10. Conduct studies on status and changes of demersal resources with impacts of trawl fisheries
  11. Develop ecosystem management plan for the UoA
  12. Well manage the FIP
