A proactive approach to documentation and information dissemination has characterised the BOBP's work from the very first phase. A visually appealing and professionally designed newsletter (Bay of Bengal News), systematic preparation and production of technical reports on all the aspects of BOBP work, a well- equipped library, photo documentation, impactful audio-visuals, video films, posters and comic books, CD-ROMs of the entire print output - together, these constitute a valuable body of knowledge. The Information service has powered the BOBP's success and longevity, and also strengthened interest worldwide on small-scale fisherfolk communities in the Bay of Bengal.
All the BOBP publications from 1979 to December 2000 are now available in a set of CD-ROMS and also on “FAO” website (Link to BOBP-IGO publications at the FAO Fisheries page).
