Risk Based Framework Assessment in Kendari

Risk Based Framework Assessment in Kendari

by September 2, 2015 0 comments

The Risk-Based Framework (RBF) was developed to make Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification programme more widely accessible to all types of fisheries. Previous to the development of the RBF, fisheries needed substantial quantitative data to be assessed against the MSC standard for sustainable fishing. This made it difficult for fisheries without quantitative data to be assessed in particular small-scale and developing world fisheries. The Southeast Sulawesi BSC fishery could be categorized as data deficiency of PIs in MSC standard. In addition, based on MSC pre-assessment recommendation, the RBF may be used for evaluating the BSC stock status, and the impact of the fisheries on primary species, secondary species, ETP species, habitat and ecosystem components of MSC standard Principle 2.


As part of the USAID-IMACS extended pilot activity to form a BSC fisheries management structure in Southeast Sulawesi, APRI was implemented an observer programme to assess catches of BSC as target species and other by-catches species. The data was the BSC catches per-unit of effort (CPUE) for both traps and gillnets fishery from fisherman and mini plant. All retained species, including by-catches or non-targeted for both fisheries are observed and identified by number of individual or species group and their weight.


The BSC stock in Tiworo strait and vicinity is likely “over fishing” and “over fished”, however the BSC productivity-susceptibility has not been yet in Southeast Sulawesi. Their productivity is influenced by their habitat, whiles their susceptibility influenced by such as type, spatial and vertical aggregation of fishery. Productivity and Susceptibility of BSC as primary species showed in Table 8 and Table 9. All species ≥2% by weight of the total catch have not been assessed yet.
