In early 2017, six researchers were awarded a grant as part of CSF’s Indonesia Marine Fellows Program (MFP). The six fellows were selected based on their research topics, which seek to answer pertinent questions about fisheries management challenges in Indonesia. The fellows were also paired with mentors who are experts in their respective fields.

Economic benefits of the California halibut fishery

Recreational anglers in the United States collectively spend millions of days and millions of dollars per year fishing in coastal and ocean waters. The state of California ranks second in the nation for recreational saltwater fishing, second only to Florida. The California halibut, Paralichthys californicus, is one of the most highly sought-after fish for recreational anglers due to its large size, delicious taste and challenging fishing behavior. Over 60,000 trips are taken per year by boat anglers targeting this species.

Economic Analysis for the Indonesian Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries

As part of a generous grant from the Walton Family Foundation, and in cooperation with IPB (Bogor Agriculture University) Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences, CSF is developing an economic analysis and a set of recommendations to the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) and the Government of Indonesia (GOI) for implementing the Presidential Instruction on the Acceleration of Development of the National Fishery Industry.

Fishery Opportunity Analyses in Latin America

As part of a generous grant from the Walton Family Foundation, CSF is conducting fishery opportunity analyses in three Latin American countries with important fishery sectors: Peru, Chile and Mexico. These analyses are designed to help CSF identify the best ways and geographies in which to grow our integrated marine and fisheries strategy, which helps to improve conservation decisions by incorporating sound economics into marine and fisheries management. Until now, CSF’s Oceans and Fish program has been focused on the Indo-Pacific region, but with this timely support, we are beginning to lay the groundwork to expand our marine program in Latin America, where CSF has a long-standing terrestrial presence.

From all of us at CSF: Thank you!
