Mac & Field was approached by the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality to develop a draft Sustainable Fisheries Plan (SFP) for the Caribbean Netherlands (Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba).
This ’SFP’ will consist of two parts:
A Caribbean Netherlands wide part, explaining the institutional, legal, and ecological context of fisheries in the Caribbean Netherlands and the Caribbean region; and
Island-specific parts where the fisheries sector for that island is explained and the goals, vision and actions for the coming 5 years are specified.
Ecosystem-Based Approach to Fisheries management
