Consulting

CapMarine takes on specialist consulting services to numerous international organisations. The nature of this work relates mostly to fisheries programmes for the World Bank (developing world) and the United Nations (Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations). Current projects include the development of a multi-national fisheries project (Comores, Tanzania, Mozambique and Seychelles) in the South West Indian Ocean (the South West Indian Ocean Fisheries Governance and Shared Growth Program - SWIOFish). CapMarine is also providing direct consulting support for the Kenya Coastal Development Project (KCDP) and also the Lake Victoria project.

Previous global and regional projects have included the South West Indian Ocean Fisheries Project (SWIOFP), the Marine and Coastal Environment Management Project (MACEMP) in Tanzania and ad hoc work for the Agulhas Somali Current Large Marine Ecosystem (ASCLME) project under the UNDP. CapMarine has also undertaken numerous regional projects on the southern African west coast (South Africa, Namibia and Angola) including the Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem (BCLME) and the Benguela Current Commission (BCC). Projects have also been carried out under the EU-Funded ACP Fish II programme (Africa-Caribbean-Pacific) in Namibia and Angola. In all of these projects CapMarine consultants have provided high level scientific and management expertise. The value of these programmes (normally 4-10 years) range from $15-$100 million.

CapMarine works closely with NGOs such as WWF and SFP (Sustainable Fisheries Partnership) to develop and implement Fisheries Improvement Programmes (FIPs).  Our focus is on Africa and includes the Mozambique shrimp fisheries, Kenyan lobster, Tanzanian Octopus and the South African hake longline fisheries.
