New book coming soon: The R/V Dr Fridtjof Nansen in the Western Indian Ocean

The research vessel Dr Fridtjof Nansen operates within the EAF-Nansen Project of FAO, and carries out fish resources and ecosystems surveys in the maritime waters of developing countries, particularly in Africa. The Project has produced a flyer taht announce the launch of a book on survey results planned for May this year. The book itself will, among others, examine the productivity of fisheries as measured by estimates of fish biomass and catch rates, and long term trends in the abundance and distribution of main species groups. It will also look at how the data and information from the surveys have been used by national scientists and others, governments of the region and the regional fisheries body in the management of the fisheries. The contribution made towards capacity development in marine and fisheries research through the Nansen surveys will be highlighted.

For more details on the book, download the flyer.
