Information Management: Key to the Future
Tuna management officials from the Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia and the Republic of the Marshall Islands met in Pohnpei (6-8 February) initiating a joint pilot project to establish enhanced fisheries information management systems in each of their national fisheries administrations.
The joint vision of the group is to have an IMS that will integrate relevant sets of information related to fishing including catch and observer reports, in real time, available at the “press of a button”. The system will be in line with “best practice” utilizing the latest technology to allow fisheries managers to make informed decisions in a timely manner. The IMS will also allow for electronic exchanges on a national and regional basis involving partner agencies and the fishing industry itself.
