This week several Tonga fisheries staff participated in a training workshop run by Lucy Joy and Andrew Hunt from the Pacific Community (SPC) to learn how to use tablets for electronic collection of catch information from small-scale fisheries. The application 'Tails' which was built by Bruno Deprez from SPC's fisheries data management program allows fisheries officers to collect and upload data from remote locations around Tonga, providing timely fisheries data to inform policy and fisheries management decisions.
