Geogrphic Information System in Fisheries Management and Planning

The overall objective of this manual is to encourage fishery managers to use this tool (GIS) to foster the sustainable use of natural resources. The manual is aimed at fisheries biologists, aquatic resource managers and decision makers in developing countries who have no knowledge about GIS. The manual was written for use with ESRI’s ArcView 3.x and Spatial Analyst software. Many fishery biologists and policy makers involved in inland fisheries management and planning are unaware of GIS technology and its potential for fisheries planning and management. The FAO Inland Water Resources and Aquaculture Service (FIRI) has been active for the last 19 years in promoting the use of GIS and remote sensing in fisheries and aquaculture. Promotional activities have been carried out through training, projects, field missions, and oral presentations and publications. However, a manual to use along with GIS software for the fisheries biologist in the field explaining GIS in a way that is understandable to non-GIS users had not been produced until now. This manual was written to overcome this knowledge-gap, it is a ‘do-it-yourself’ manual giving a short introduction to GIS software and its applications in fishery science.

ProcessDescription The FAO Inland Water Resources and Aquaculture Service (FIRI) has been active in promoting the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing since 1985. However, a manual to use along with GIS software for the fisheries biologist in the field explaining the use of GIS in inland fisheries management in a way that is understandable to non-GIS users had not been produced at FIRI until now. The idea of writing this manual came after Gertjan de Graaf (NEFISCO foundation, Amsterdam) applied GIS techniques in several fisheries projects in Bangladesh and Rumania, and used these experiences to write a manual on the use of GIS in fisheries management for Bangladeshi fishery biologists.
