Component 1 of the KEMFSED project (Governance and Management of Marine Fisheries) aims at supporting improvement of management of marine fisheries in the Kenyan waters by strengthening co-management of nearshore fisheries and infrastructure development in relation to fisheries management at national and county levels. Under Sub-Component 1.1 of the project, Catch Assessment Survey (CAS) is supposed to assist in the improvement in fisheries data collection and monitoring.
The CAS data collectors and their supervisors, from both National and County governments, started their 3 day workshop.
The objective of the workshop was to review progress on the CAS since inception in February 2022, configure mobile data applications forms, validate and digitize the data records stored in hard cover books. The meeting also addressed the field challenges and recommend way forward.
