Project Objective: The overall aim of the project is to improve the wellbeing of men, women and children in Pacific coastal communities through more productive and resilient fisheries and better food and nutrition security.
The project consists of resources management measures together with supporting measures based on the following four perspectives:
WHAT IS TAILS
Tails is an innovative mobile or tablet application designed for use by small-scale fishers to “catch” information, recording the quantity of fish they catch and the different species. Tails allows fisheries officers the flexibility of collecting data when out in the field even when they don’t have access to internet. Data is then automatically synced, uploading catch information to national datasets through integration with the ‘Tufman 2’ data management system, also developed by SPC.
GOS Stands for:" The project for promotion of Grace of the sea in coastal villages in the republic of vanuatu.
FUNDED By: Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA)
PROJECT OBJECTIVE: To encourage community members to improve their capacity for coastal resource management and support them to utilize marine resources like Sea shells, Sea Cucumbers, reef fish and so on in a sustainable manner.
