The Fisheries Management Assessment Tool (FISHMAT) provides a platform to assess small-scale fisheries, visualize data, and use adaptive management to achieve fishery goals. The tool will help you make science-backed fisheries management decisions, assess how these interventions are performing, and make adjustments as necessary. You can use this to inform your own Adaptive Fisheries Management Plan to improve local fisheries. See below the FISHMAT guide for more details about using the tool and a Fisheries Management Plan Template.
