In the present study, digital imaging was used to measure length-frequency data from all major migratory habitats of Hilsa. This investigation appears to be the first to generate information using this technique regarding population dynamics and stock status of Hilsa, and subsequently, a guideline for using this method was developed. This is also the first time that the spatial and temporal size composition of Hilsa in sanctuary, nonsanctuary, and marine habitats were also compared.
Poverty alleviation and resource governance are inextricably related. Mainstream resource management has been typically criticized by social scientists for the inherent power imbalances between fishery managers and small-scale fishing communities. Yet, while a number of mechanisms of collective action to address these power imbalances have been developed, they remain undertheorized.
The Ayeyarwady State of the Basin Assessment (SOBA) is one of the major knowledge outputs of the Ayeyarwady Integrated River Basin Management (AIRBM) Project prepared by Hydro-Informatics Centre (HIC). SOBA aims to inform planning in the Ayeyarwady Basin by providing baseline information on the condition and trends in water and land resources as well as related ecosystem services and the livelihoods and economies of Myanmar that depend on these resources.
