Abu Dhabi, 28 February 2016:
A revised version of the CMS Dugong MOU Standardised Dugong Catch and Bycatch Questionnaire and Upload File is now available along with a new shorter version of the Questionnaire. The revised Questionnaire has been updated to reflect the lessons learnt through the use of the Questionnaire since its release, however the changes are minimal and mostly to the order and logic of some questions. The Upload File has undergone a major review and includes a number of bug fixes.
The Short Questionnaire is designed for use in follow-up interviews for ongoing monitoring once the original Questionnaire has been completed.
Releasing the revised versions will not restrict anyone from using the older versions of the Questionnaire and Upload file. Please note the September 2012 version of the Project Manual is still current.
27 November 2017:
The Data Upload Sheet has been updated. By following the instructions in the excel spreadsheet and the Project Manual, users can upload the data from their completed Questionnaires into the spreadsheet. The spreadsheet will then produce a number of charts that depict the results of the Questionnaires.
