Public Sector Regulatory Systems for Ecosystems Based Management of Aquaculture - a GAP Analysis Tool

Author(s): Perera, R.P. | Published: 4/9/2013 | 2417 views

This document presents a tool, in the form of an audit table that can be used to broadly screen and identify gaps in the management systems of government agencies responsible for regulating aquaculture. These gaps, once identified, can be a first step toward building regulatory frameworks that can better deliver on jurisdictional ecologically sustainable development (ESD) and ecosystems approach to aquaculture (EAA) objectives. The end product of an assessment is a report for consideration by decision makers that lists the identified systems deficiencies and recommends aspects of aquaculture regulatory systems that should be developed, improved or subject to closer investigation. The audit tool is intended for self-assessment by interested government jurisdictions and should ideally be conducted by a small team comprising individuals with relevant expertise taken from within government agencies, external consultants or a combination thereof.
