Tuna Data Workshop TDW15 , 7-8th April 2021
Tuesday, 31 March 2020 00:00

The regional Tuna Data Workshop is conducted on an annual basis for SPC member countries to improve their scientific tuna monitoring and data management capacity, and satisfy their data reporting obligations to the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC). Due to COVID-19 virus, 2021 marks the second electronic Tuna Data Workshop, a shortened version of the regular TDW, and will be held from the 7th to the 8th of April, Online (ZOOM video conference).

Longline Electronic Monitoring Compliance Data and Transhipment Standards Workshop - 18-20 Nov 2020
Friday, 06 November 2020 00:00

The purpose of the DCC LL EM Compliance Data and Transhipment Standards Workshop will be to address three areas:

- To identify a set of data fields that are required for MCS purposes that may be collected by Electronic Monitoring on longline vessels.

- Review and develop TORs for the progress of the regional agency workplan for support of EM Standards, Specifications and Procedures (SSPs) development.

- Develop a suite of minimum data fields that would be required for monitoring of longline transhipment operations for scientific and compliance purposes. These would be baseline requirements and not specific to a particular data collection tool. These minimum data fields would be relevant to the acquisition of data from longline transhipments from either EM or observers.

DCC E-Monitoring standards
Wednesday, 13 January 2021 14:42


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

In recognising the potential for E-Monitoring to enhance fishery monitoring, the SPC/FFA/PNAO Data Collection Committee have conducted a series of meetings and intersessional work that are aimed at producing standards for E-Monitoring.   

This web page provides the links to meetings and the draft/adopted standards for E-Monitoring for reference and use by member countries.

Tuesday, 15 February 2022 00:00
