Effective resource management requires a sound understanding of the resource base.
The MRAG group has built up considerable in-house expertise in biological and economic resource assessment and can draw on a strong network of internationally-recognised fisheries scientists.
MRAG Asia Pacific has undertaken assessments on a diverse range of living resources from fish, crustacean, and mollusc species to terrestrial livestock. Assessments have been conducted on resources of all sizes: from small tropical fisheries to industrial operations where catches exceed 2,000,000 tons. We have also participated in the design and implementation of industrial and artisanal fisheries data collection programmes across a range of developed and developing countries.
Our services include:
- Fisheries stock assessments and resource characterisation;
- Data collection program design and implementation;
- Fisheries survey design and implementation, including logistical support; and
- Data analysis and interpretation.
