BMP SKIPJACK FISHERY WITH POLE AND LINE (HUHATE): A FISHING AND HANDLING GUIDE
Praise be to God Almighty for the completion of the preparation of Better Management Practices (BMP) Skipjack Fisheries - With Pole and Line Fishing (Huhate), Catching and Handling Guidelines 2nd Edition. The preparation of this BMP 2nd Edition has gone through several stages, namely field data collection and desk study, pilot project activities in several locations, internal review of the WWF Indonesia Foundation fisheries team and Focus Group Discussion with fisheries experts as external expert reviewers.
This BMP is a practical guide that can be applied in skipjack fishing in small-scale fisheries and post-capture handling. Most of the information materials were obtained from the experience of the WWF Indonesia Foundation fisheries team in several East Flores, Bone Bay, and Flores Sea, as well as the experience of the WWF Indonesia fisheries team at the assistance site in East Flores. This BMP is a living document that will continue to be refined and adjusted to developments in the field as well as suggestions and input from related parties.
Our gratitude goes to the Department of Marine Affairs and Fisheries of East Nusa Tenggara Province, East Flores, Sikka, Lembata, Sinjai, Selayar, East Flores Pole and Line Fishermen Association, Hasanuddin University Makassar, and Fisheries State Polytechnic-Bitung for their assistance, cooperation, input and corrections in the preparation. We are always open to all parties for all suggestions and constructive criticism for the sake of improvement, and we do not forget to apologize if there are errors and shortcomings in the preparation process and content of this BMP.
