The SEAFDEC Training Department (TD) is organizing training activities on “the Study Larvae in Cambodia Waters and Human Resource Development of Cambodia Research in Larvae Identifications” from 1 to 31 August 2017 at TD laboratory for two (2) potential researchers from FiA Cambodia. The aims to enhance capacity building on fish larvae identification. The training is conducted and supervised by SEAFDEC researcher and resource persons on fish larvae.

The activity is followed from “Marine Fisheries Collaborative Research Survey” between Fisheries Administrative (FiA) Cambodia, National Fisheries University (NFU) Japan, and SEAFDEC/TD in the Cambodian Waters in 2016, under the project of “Offshore Fisheries Resource Exploration in Southeast Asia”.

The SEAFDEC Training Department (TD) in collaboration with The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) organized “The Second Technical Group Planning Workshop ” under the project of the Oceans and Fisheries Partnership (USAID Ocean) from 12 to 14 July 2017 in Bangkok, Thailand. The Workshop aims to take stock of the past year and to discuss activities to be conducted in Fiscal Year 2017 (Program Year 3) with the involvement of TWG members from both learning sites in Philippines and Indonesia including expansion sites. In addition, learning sessions were conducted to share approaches used related to fisheries appraisal, value chain analysis, development of Catch Documentation and Traceability System (CDT), and gender and labor analyses at the learning sites during the past year. At the end, the Workshop came up with the draft USAID Oceans Year 3 work plan aligned with country specific tasks and related work plans of partner organizations including work plan for expansion sites.

The Oceans and Fisheries Partnership (USAID Oceans) is collaboration project between SEAFDEC and USAID for five-years activity working to strengthen regional cooperation to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing and conserve marine biodiversity in the Asia-Pacific region. USAID Oceans will improve integrated and sustainable fisheries management, focusing on priority species that are vital for food security and economic growth and under threat from IUU fishing and seafood fraud. The activity supports U.S. and regional efforts in Asia and the Pacific to promote sustainable fishing practices and combat fraud and the sale of fisheries products from IUU fishing. The Sub-purpose is to improve fisheries management standards through integration of conservation and fisheries management in at least eight (8) countries in the Asia Pacific region by 2020.

Two (2) representatives from SEAFDEC Training Department attended in the 3rd Coral Triangle Fishers Forum from 4 to 6 July 2017 in Iloilo City, Philippines, organized by the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management (EAFM) Working Group of the Coral Triangle Initiative for Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security (CTI-CFF), which support from the World Wild Fund for Nature (WWF) and the CTI-CFF Regional Secretariat. The forum discussed on sustainable coastal fisheries through local innovation: scaling up effective models for IUU fishing reduction, catch documentation and traceability in support of sustainable local fisheries. The forum was attended by CTI-CFF Member Countries namely Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste, Oceans and Fisheries Partnership, WWF, Pacific Community (SPC), SEAFDEC and so on. In this occasion, SEAFDEC took this opportunity by introducting the electronic system of ASEAN Catch Documentation Scheme (eACDS) at the Plenary and Demonstration Session to promote activities on reducing IUU fishing through innovative technology applied locally.

The SEAFDEC Training Department (TD) organized “The Workshop on Appropriate Fishing Vessel Design” from 3 to 4 July 2017 in Bangkok, Thailand. The aims to promote and improve awareness on energy efficiency to reduction of greenhouse gas impact from fishing vessels in Southeast Asia through gathering the information for concept of an appropriate fishing vessel design to support fishing vessel's operational base on fuel efficiency use, safety at sea, improve good working/living conditions and reduction of manpower onboard. There are 40 participants who are representatives from fishery association and stakeholder attended in this Workshop. The Workshop came up with conceptual from the fleet on, an appropriate fishing vessel design base on energy efficiency and safety at sea of fishing vessel operation including improved good working/living conditions onboard.
