Summary The project provides assistance to Suriname in the development of an efficient legal framework for capture fisheries management in line with international best practices and obligations arising out of international legal instruments for fisheries. The project addresses the substantial shortcomings in the current legal framework for fisheries. These shortcomings relate to the absence of clear licensing procedures for marine capture fisheries, the inadequate framework for carrying out effective monitoring, control and enforcement, and the lack of a sufficiently detailed legal framework for inland fisheries, with conflicts of resource users and misinterpretation of existing legislation as a result.
