    Fisheries in the tropical ecosystem present unique challenges to the fisheries managers/researchers in estimating the stock abundance and drawing management plans for optimum harvest of the resources. Unlike temperate waters, tropical fisheries are characterized by high diversity and multiplicity of gear, of which many are non-selective and harvest a variety of species in a single haul. Such attributes of tropical fisheries make estimations more challenging than the temperate fisheries. Fisheries stocks, if unmanaged, are exhaustible and can lead to consequences that can impact food and nutritional security, livelihoods and in many cases also the national economy. Thus the need for good estimates arising out of stock assessment is being increasingly felt by coastal nations to ensure that their stocks are not over-harvested and maintained at sustainable levels. Besides meeting such objectives, sound stock assessment figures have also become a necessity for meeting the obligations under international agreements/arrangements to which countries are signatory. This Training Manual for ‘Stock Assessment of Tropical Fishes’ has been prepared to facilitate the training of 12 Officials nominated by the Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh to undertake 14 days Training Course on ‘Stock Assessment of Tropical Fishes’ at the ICAR- Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI), Kochi, India. The Training Course has been organized by the Bay of Bengal Programme Inter-Governmental Organisation (BOBP-IGO), Chennai in pursuance of (i) recommendations made in the Second Meeting of the Joint Working Group between India and Bangladesh on Cooperation in the Field of Fisheries held on 28 - 29 October 2015 in Goa, India and (ii) towards capacity building of fisheries managers/researchers from Bangladesh in stock assessment as a part of the capacity building activities under the World Bank/GEF funded ‘Ocean Partnership Project for Sustainable Fisheries and Biodiversity Conservation – Models for Innovation and Reforms: Bay of Bengal Project
