Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center

On 3 April 2015, in conjunction with the 47th Meeting of the SEAFDEC Council held in Chiang Rai, Thailand, SEAFDEC and the Coral Triangle Initiative on Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security (CTI-CFF) reached the stage where the collaborative arrangement between the two organizations was realized through the signing of the MOU by the Secretary-General of SEAFDEC Dr. Chumnarn Pongsri, and the Executive Director of the CTI-CFF Dr. Widi A Pratikto.

The collaboration between the CTI-CFF and SEAFDEC has been discussed since 2013, starting with the conduct of the Intergovernmental Forum on Live Reef Food Fish Trade (LRFFT). Since then, several technical activities had already been undertaken by SEAFDEC in the overlapping spatial areas of the CTI-CFF and SEAFDEC, e.g. the Project on Strategies for Trawl Fisheries By-catch Management” (REBYC-II CTI Project), promotion of Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management (EAFM), and conservation and management of fishery resources in the coral triangle area, etc.
