Good practices for fishing, manufacturing, storage and marketing of fish products were implemented together with artisanal fishing communities in the Colombian Pacific coast. A way of measuring the proper implementation of these good practices is also being developed. Results and impacts were measured through biological and socioeconomic monitoring of key variables to as to evaluate the changes achieved by the project, both in ecosystems and in organizations or executing agencies.

Enabling factors

Communities are aware of their ecosystems and the pressure on it, so are available for a solution. The communities know and understand the importance to register information of the species, frequency of capture and size for guarantee a sustainable fisheries. With the previous experience, we have learned the importance of measure results and impacts in the long run to be able to follow up changes at the organization and ecosystem level.

Lessons learned

The communities are willing to generate conservation mechanisms such as protected area, but to organize and implement the agreement take time and resources. The monitor system and data collection demand lots of time and expenses. Also to be representative it´s necessary to have serious of time for a statistical analysis and species pressure simulation.
