APRI FIP rated B “Good Progress” by SFP

by July 25, 2016 0 comments

The Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) is making a new, first-of-its-kind evaluation tool and grading system for fishery improvement projects (FIPs) that will allow the seafood industry and other stakeholders to assess the effectiveness of these initiatives.

By July 2016, APRI FIP was rated B meaning that the FIP is in good progress or improvements in the water. The FIP is resulting in verifiable change in the water such an a reduction in fishing mortality, an increase in biomass of the target stock, a reduction in bycatch or damage to marine habitats, or an increase in the population size of an impacted endangered species. These outcomes can often be verified through the use of existing third party public reports. However, in some cases, such information does not exist or is considered unreliable and a third party audit may be required to verify the outcomes.

APRI runs the Blue Swimming Crab fishery improvement projects (FIP) in Indonesia since 2010. A FIP operates via an alliance of seafood buyers, suppliers, and producers. These stakeholders work together to improve a specific fishery by pressing for better policies and management, while voluntarily changing purchasing and fishing practices to reduce problems such as illegal fishing, bycatch, and habitat impacts.
