A feature of harmonised fisheries legislation of CARICOM Member States in the eastern Caribbean is that Fisheries Advisory Committees (FAC) be established to advise the minister responsible for fisheries on fisheries management, conservation and development. The FAC is a formal, national co-management arrangement via a multi-stakeholder body. Barbados' FAC has existed since 1995.This case study examines the institutional relationships of the FAC in Barbados and examines what may be done to enhance its co-management capacity.
