The main objective of the Asian Fisheries Social Science Research Network is to build national research capacity to deal with important socio-economic issues in the management of the complex tropical fisheries of the SoutheastAsian region and in the development of the aquaculture industry.

In this report the regular data collection systems of the Departments of Fisheries and other government or quasi-government institutions such as marketing and development agencies are first described (Section VI). Most of the data collected by these institutions are biological and technical rather than socioeconomic, and generally they do not deal specifically with the small-scale fisheries of the country.
