  • Description:
    "Fishing impacts, land-based sources of pollution, and climate change are the three main stressors of coral reefs and their resources in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) and wider Caribbean as determined by both federal and local resource managers during priority setting exercises. Resource managers and community supporters (i.e., fishing associations, academia, scientists, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs)) recognize the need for building USVI community capacity to participate in natural resources management and to play a more active role in community-led conservation as a way of reducing human-based stressors to coral reefs and fisheries resources. To achieve this, the USVI is making awareness a top priority, looking for ways to get the communities to take ownership of the resources, and building relationships between the community and managers in order to gain support for necessary management actions. To address these priorities, and with funding from NOAA's Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP), a series of projects has been developed under the brand of "Marine Outreach and Education USVI Style (MOES-VI)". The Improving Fishing Community Awareness and Compliance project is one of several projects under the MOES-VI brand, led by the USVI Department of Planning and Natural Resources (DPNR) and with support from the NOAA CRCP USVI Fisheries Liaison. The project aims to develop an effective and efficient process for building fisher awareness and knowledge of fisheries management rules and regulations. The project has been developed as a collaboration between DPNR Division of Fish and Wildlife (DFW), DPNR Division of Environmental Enforcement (DEE), and CRCP, with input from the Caribbean Fishery Management Council (CFMC)"--Introduction.
