Regional Longline Electronic Monitoring Policy

Electronic monitoring (EM) provides an additional complementary tool that is being integrated to the existing suite of FFA member country fishery monitoring systems. It is intended to strengthen the availability of quality1 data and information from fisheries that have historically supported low levels of monitoring. As a result, it will contribute to on-going FFA member country initiatives to secure sustainable tuna fisheries in the WCPO region.

This nationally driven, regionally harmonised and coordinated Policy describes the purpose and application of EM by FFA member countries. It includes EM programmes with both scientific and compliance-related objectives. Cost-effectiveness is also a key objective.
