WWF promotes training in monitoring marine species

WWF-Mozambique and South Africa promoted training for representatives of government institutions and fishermen in the use of BRUVs (Baited Remote Underwater Video) to monitor marine species, from 11 to 14 April in Vilankulo. During the training, more than 30 participants had the opportunity to go to sea, test the BRUVs in practice and familiarize themselves with the use of the equipment. 
With this initiative, it is expected that participants will acquire the necessary capacity to participate in similar actions, using BRUVs for data collection, analysis and processing, to support fisheries resource management measures.
The training is a joint initiative of two projects implemented by WWF in the district of Vilankulo and in South Africa through the SWIO Program "Improving Governance, Livelihoods and Ecosystems" financed by the German Government (BMZ) and the "Don't Catch Me if You Can" project (funded by WWF Sweden). In addition to Government institutions (SDAE of Vilankulo and Inhassoro, ADMAR, InOM and Bazarut Archipelago National Park) and fishermen, there were also representatives from WWF (Maputo, First and Second Islands Protection Area - PSEPA and Vilankulo) and agents from the Management Oriented Monitoring System (SMOG).
