CONSULTANCY TO CONDUCT A 12-MONTH ASSESSMENT OF MUD CRAB (S. SERRATA) STOCK AND FISHERY ON MAHÉ, PRASLIN AND SILHOUETTE ISLANDS
SeyCCAT in collaboration with the Seychelles Fishing Authority seeks to recruit a consultant (or a team of consultants) to conduct a stock assessment of the mud crab (Scylla serrata) population on Mahé, Praslin, and Silhouette. The consultant(s) will also assess the fishery of the mangrove crab. The overall objective of this consultancy is for SFA to have a better understanding of the wild mud crab population, their geographic distribution and abundance within the inner islands, the seasonality of life cycle stages (if any), the harvesting methods used in the local fishery, and carapace size frequency as it relates to the fishery so as to determine whether or not mud crabs can be sustainably exploited for future mariculture development, such as fattening in Seychelles, and if there is a need to regulate the fishery. This consultancy will be approximately 15 months.
Please send an email on firstname.lastname@example.org requesting a copy of the terms of reference. Subject of your email should be consultancy for assessment of mud crab.
