JAKARTA, 1 August 2023 – A Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) team visited the JAIF Management Team (JMT) on 1 August 2023. As an entity associated with ASEAN, SEAFDEC has been implementing various JAIF-funded projects since 2015, aiming at ensuring the sustainability of fisheries and aquaculture in Southeast Asia. One of the projects strives to strengthen resource management measures of Tropical Anguillid Eel through the project Development of Stock Assessment Methods and Strengthening of Resources Management Measures for Tropical Anguillid Eel in Southeast Asia. SEAFDEC will also launch a new project to build the capacities of the ASEAN Member States for monitoring and reducing marine debris from fisheries.

Dr. NAKAZATO Tomoko, Deputy Secretary-General (DSG) and Japanese Trust Fund Program Manager, updated JMT on the progress of ongoing projects, including the outputs produced and the challenges faced by the projects thus far.

JMT welcomed the visit and suggested that similar meetings be arranged again in the future for exchanging views on project implementation as well as facilitating communication between SEAFDEC and JMT.
