The ACP FISH II Programme was conceived as a technical assistance programme designed to provide technical expertise to ACP countries to improve fisheries management. As a result the instruments that can be provided by the ACP FISH II Programme are of three types: technical assistance, training and facilitation of workshops or meetings
ACPFISH II has the clear understanding that the most effective way to involve all concerned entities in fisheries development and sustainable growth should be achieved through the ownership of the Programme by all actors: government departments responsible for marine and inland fisheries and related ecosystems, Regional Fisheries Bodies, universities and research facilities, fishers, fish processors and traders associations, civil society through professional associations and local communities.
As a consequence, more than 150 consultative and validation workshops ensure a participatory approach for all projects, through the active involvement of stakeholders. Throughout the Programme implementation, the outcome of the projects has resulted in committed fisheries officials and administrations, along with enforced private stakeholders.
