The objective of this project was to provide technical assistance for the World Bank task team and the counterparts in Liberia (National Fisheries and Aquaculture Authority) and Sierra Leone (Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resoucres) to help strengthen their capacity in terms of MCS and information gathering and analysis to provide more in-time information for decision making and scientific evidence for fisheries management plans and policy making. This will enable the agencies in the fisheries sector to conduct MCS analysis and train local personnel to build capacities in the country so that there will be more systematic data analysis and reports generated for the management team regularly and also made data available publicly.
