Site selection

The site selection process allows fishery practitioners to select the most strategically appropriate sites or fisheries to work in. The criteria used to select a site are customized to reflect the country and project strategy, and desk research and site visits are conducted to assess conditions and context at potential sites. By agreeing upon predetermined criteria and selecting a site based on those criteria, project organizers have a structured way to select a project site/fishery.
