Abstract

The two workshops held in Bogor, Indonesia, synthesised information for seven data-limited fisheries in Indonesia and built an understanding of both evaluating management strategies for fisheries and how to apply the Method Evaluation and Risk Assessment package (MERA). As part of the process, new data assessments of fisheries were tabled, mainly using the length-based spawning potential ratio, which typically found very low stock levels. These findings are consistent with those reported to the Government of Indonesia on the status of stocks across the 11 Fisheries Management Areas (FMAs). For example, in 2011, 35% of stocks were assessed as fully exploited and 38% as overexploited, while in 2017, 39% were reported as fully exploited and 44% as overexploited (e.g. decision number 50/KEPMEN-KP/2017). The findings also highlight the need to better manage the fisheries and implement effective measures to rebuild stocks...
