The purpose of this monograph is to identify those areas of traditional fisheries research which have the greatest potential for contributing to the solution of problems facing traditional fishermen and their communities.
Sixteen papers are presented on existing and proposed designs for hulls and engines of Pacific Island small-scale fishing craft. No single design is adaptable for use throughout the Pacific. The selection of designs and engines should be based on least input of petroleum products. Consideration should be given to standardizing engine models to simplify repairs. A consultative design group is proposed to test combinations of hulls and propulsion systems.
This paper consists of four main parts: a) the marine fisheries of Southeast Asia; b) the mathematical models; c)the Gulf of Thailand trawl fishery as a case study; and d) possible new approaches in the study and management of region's fisheries.
