Fisheries management cannot be undertaken efficiently unless the basic data is available. It is essential for the management agency that the most appropriate and accurate information for management of the fishery is continuously collected, processed and provided in a timely approach. Development and establishment of a robust fisheries information system is essential to Sri Lanka for sustainable management of the fishery sector. This study was carried out to implement improved fisheries data collection sampling system that is feasible for fisheries in Sri Lanka along with an improved fisheries database and database management system. The outcome of the study is five-fold: fisheries data collection system project report (this report), fisheries database and client application, database administration manual, client application user manual and fisheries data collection system guidelines for data collectors.
