Description

The Skippers Workshop team has developed posters for purse-seine fishers. The posters show “best practices” for handling sharks, manta rays, and sea turtles that are incidentally caught. The posters are based on the best practices for bycatch-handling guidebook produced by Poisson et al. 2012.

This is an Indonesian translation of a best-practices poster for purse-seine fishers used in ISSF Skippers Workshops. The poster is also available in Chinese, English, French, Korean, and Spanish.
