USAID Heshimu Bahari (Respect the Ocean) is a five-year (2022-2027) project financed by USAID and implemented by Chemonics International and partners. The goal of the project is to strengthen the enabling environment and science-driven framework for sustainable marine management areas (MMAs) and fisheries co-management in Tanzania Mainland and Zanzibar, by Government, communities, and the private sector, through four integrated objectives:

  1. Strengthening the enabling framework for a network of MMAs and fisheries replenishment zones (FRZs) to support biodiversity conservation, climate resilient communities, and sustainable wild-caught fisheries.
  2. Community co-management of MMAs/wild-caught fisheries and climate resilience strengthened.
  3. Private sector investment in MMAs and wild-caught fisheries expanded.
  4. Integration of relevant science to MMA and fisheries policy and management improved.

USAID Opportunities, Heshimu Bahari Proposal Objectives 

Objectives.

To fill data gaps and inform fisheries management, the United Republic of Tanzania through the Deep Sea Fishing Authority (DSFA) will pilot Electronic Monitoring (EM)-the use of onboard video cameras, GPS, and sensors to automatically track and verify fishing activity onboard fishing vessels-to support sustainable fishing and transparency in industrial vessels fishing in its Exclusive Economic Zone.

An 18-month EM pilot project will be used to test and gather lessons learned for how an EM program could be designed to support potential 100% EM application in Tanzania’s industrial vessels, including costs, training, and infrastructure. The EM pilot will help to test the following:

  • Acceptability of the EM system by the fishing industry.
  • Infrastructure reguirements and technical capacity needs.
  • Quantity and guality of collected information collected using EM system.

Chemonics International, acting for the USAID Heshimu Bahari, is soliciting proposals from eligible and responsible firms to carry out the following activities:

  • The installation and maintenance of EM equipment that meet required Indian Ocean Tuna Commission EM Program Standards for three(3)vessels(with potential option for fourth vessel).

  • The production of analyzed EM trip reports and compliance notifications.
