The objectives of the SPS-FIP are:

  1. Decision making process on fishery management is transparent, inclusive and participatory
  2. Fishery data, species, habitats and environmental information is collected, published and publicly available.
  3. Stock assessments of relevant species to the fishery are conducted on regular bases, following scientific methodology and their results are published and publicly available.
  4. Conservations and Management Measures (CMMs) are adopted by fishery managers accordingly to the stock assessments outcomes and recommendations.
  5. Fishery interactions with ETP are registered by concerned fleets and managers adopt CMMs accordingly.
