BMP GROUPER AND SNAPPER FISHERIES: A GUIDE TO CATCHING AND HANDLING
Praise be to God Almighty for the completion of the Better Management Practices (BMP), Small Scale Fisheries Guideline Series, Grouper and Snapper Fisheries - Catch and Handling Guidelines. This BMP is the 2nd Edition, which has gone through several processes, namely field data collection and desk study, pilot project activities, internal review of the WWF-Indonesia Foundation fisheries team and focus group discussions with several grouper and snapper fisheries experts as external expert reviewers.
These BMPs are practical guidelines specifically applicable to small-scale grouper and snapper fishing and handling. Most of the materials are drawn from the experience of the WWF-Indonesia Foundation fisheries team in several fishing locations in Wakatobi, Berau, Teluk Cendrawasih, Kei, and Makassar. This BMP is a living document that will continue to be refined in accordance with developments in the field as well as input from the parties concerned. Our sincere gratitude for the assistance, cooperation, input, and correction of the parties in the preparation of this BMP, namely fishermen groups in Wakatobi and Berau Regencies and Hasanuddin University Makassar for the data and information as well as input and correction provided. We are always open to all parties for any constructive input for the sake of improvement as well as our deepest apologies if there are errors and shortcomings in the process of preparing this BMP.
