The majority of Solomon Islanders live in rural communities and are dependent on natural resources for their livelihoods. For many people, ways of generating income or producing food outside of small-scale fishing and agriculture are limited. Many development actors (e.g. government agencies and nongovernmental organizations) work with people in rural communities to develop and improve livelihoods, food security and environmental sustainability.
WorldFish focuses on testing technologies that improve the productivity of fisheries and aquaculture and strengthen value chains to increase incomes of fishdependent people in Zambia and throughout sub-Saharan Africa. WorldFish works in the Barotse Floodplain of western Zambia where its research focuses on testing improved fish processing technologies and social innovations to reduce post-harvest losses and improve gender relations throughout the fishery value chain.
This paper aims to support community-based fisheries management (CBFM) of inland fisheries resources in Bangladesh. An investigation into the impact of the nationwide CBFM Project and four alternative yield-effort models were fitted to the catch (yield) and effort data. The study comprised community managed fisheries (sites) located in five different inland water habitat types in Bangladesh for the period 1997-2005.
