The National Fisheries Statistics System of
Timor-Leste

Welcome to the National Fisheries Statistics System of Timor-Leste.

This system provides public access to a wide range of statistical and environmental information relating to fisheries in Timor-Leste.

The site is operated by the National Directorate of Fisheries and Aquaculture (NDFA) and was established with the support of the Spanish-funded Regional Fisheries Livelihoods Programme for South and Southeast Asia (RFLP) which is implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

Publicly available information includes:

  • Boat census data gathered by the Fishery Inspection Department
  • Daily information on the price of fish by species and location
  • Live maps showing fishing grounds, dangerous areas and fishers’ movements
  • Data on accidents at sea or in coastal areas

    A restricted area of the site includes:

  • Live maps and data recording incidents of reported illegal fishing
  • Complete data sets of information gathered

    The site is also home to public information on other fisheries-related projects and fisheries legislation as well as a portal for data provided from other providers such as weather, tide, wind predictions, cyclone warnings and sea surface temperatures.
