Fishery problems in Southeast Asia

The author discusses the problems affecting the distribution and management of fishery resources in Southeast Asia. The problems discussed are essentially of two kinds. One set relates to conflicts over the distribution of fishery wealth, and the other to the potential violations of agreements and regulations and the necessity for effective enforcement measures to achieve the efficient production of net benefits. These, of course, are not the only problems that need to be solved, but it is safe to say that unless they are solved, the best scientific research and the best management proposals and plans will be of little value.
