23 Nov Promoting Sustainable Fisheries in Lombok

unknownimage3Sustainable fisheries and marine protected areas (MPAs go hand in hand with conserving and sustaining our marine resources. CTC, in collaboration with the Indonesia Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries, conducted training on the role of MPAs for sustainable fisheries in Mataram on November 22-23, 2016. Twenty fisheries extension officers from West Nusa Tenggara Province attended the event, which was followed by a competency assessment. The training aimed to enhance the understanding of the linkages between MPAs and fisheries amongst fisheries extension officers and strengthen their role in spreading the message of marine conservation and sustainable fisheries management amongst the communities they work with. The training included a visit to the Gita Nada MPA in West Sekotong, Lombok. During the visit, participants learned the importance of community involvement in patrolling the MPA as well as supporting tourism in the area. (Photos courtesy of Hesti Widodo)
