Coastal Fisheries Programme


About SPC's Coastal Fisheries Programme (CFP)

The Coastal Fisheries Programme (CFP) is one of two programmes that make up the Fisheries, Aquaculture and Marine Ecosystem (FAME) Division of SPC, the other one being the Oceanic Fisheries Programme. The CFP’s goal is: “coastal fisheries, nearshore fisheries and aquaculture in Pacific Island Countries and Territories are managed and developed sustainably”. The CFP is made up of two sections: the Aquaculture Section and the Coastal Fisheries Management, Science and Livelihoods Section.



SPC Beche-de-mer Information Bulletin #42

This 42nd issue includes 15 original articles and scientific observations from around the world. We continue here the formula initiated with issue #41 by including articles in English and French. Some articles appear only in one of the two languages, others in both. The first article by Byrne et al. reminds us of the need for better taxonomic determination in the conservation results of sea cucumbers, and presents a case study on teatfish of the Great Barrier Reef.



SPC Fisheries Address Book 2022

The SPC Fisheries Address Book contains more than 1500 individual contacts of fisheries-related people, mainly from the Pacific Islands Region, but also from other parts of the world. For each Pacific Island country or territory, additional information on EEZ and emerged land areas, population, currency, official language(s) and local time is given. The SPC Fisheries Address Book is verified and updated each year.
