Work Programme

TVMs work programme seeks to focus on five key areas. They are:

  1. Ongoing fisheries-related capacity development and the enhancement of sub-regional capability, through enabling the sharing of resources, including fisheries monitoring control, surveillance and enforcement (MCSE) resources
  2. Promoting the sharing of information between the participants in fisheries policy, fisheries management, fisheries development, fishing industry related issues, fisheries science, MCSE, and other technical expertise in fisheries
  3. Enhancing the ability of the TVMA participants to co-operate and promote the interests of the sub-region in regional organisations and international fora dealing with fisheries issues including, where appropriate, collaboration with the FFA and SPC
  4. Promoting co-operation between the TVMA participants with regard to MCSE, both domestically and on the high seas, including in seeking to increase the value of fisheries through countering illegal, unregulated and unreported fishing and
  5. Supporting and strengthening industry development initiatives, including via links between the fishing industry sectors.
