ICLARM's research on coral reef resource systems.

ICLARM's current research programs on coral reef resource systems are focused on three main areas: 1) increasing sustainable yields and economic benefits from coral reef systems by the cultivation of desirable species or enhancing natural recruitment by the release of hatchery-reared juveniles; 2) improving ecosystem and resourcemanagement, through integrated coastal resources management, including the role of marine protected areas, the valuation of resource systems and alternative uses of resources (tourism and recreation), and the development of a global database on coral reef ecosy

ICLARM operational plan.

This plan is a complete compendium of the year's work in all parts of the research and support program, and in our linkages and contributions to the work of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research. It also provides information on all our partnerships, the recent achievements in ongoing activities, and sources of support.

Fishery resources accounting in the Philippines.

The conventional system of national accounts does not recognize or include environmental or natural resource as inputs to production such that It responds poorly to changes in environmental and resource conditions. Also, it fails to reflect the efforts to solve environmental problems and efforts to clean up the problem. The author of this papr takes a look at Gross National Product from a different perspective.

Fishermen's knowledge as background information in tropical fish ecology: a quantitative comparison with fish sampling results

An investigation of fishermen’s knowledge of fish occurrence patterns on various spatio-temporal scales has been realized in the Fatala Estuary (Guinea, West Africa), accompanied by a one-year survey with standardized gill-net sets. Seventy one fishermen distributed in four zones corresponding to gill-net sampling sites were questioned about seasonal variations of species’ relative abundances. Longitudinal and seasonal patterns of fish relative abundances were described with correspondence analysis and ANOVA for both approaches.

Fisheries of the Farasan Islands (Red Sea)

The fisheries of the Farasan Islands (Saudi Arabia, Red Sea) are described. The fishery resources are exploited by artisanal, investor and industrial sectors. The artisanal fishery consists mostly of line fishing around coral reefs and about half the fishing effort occurs within the proposed marine protected area (MPA). Activities by investor and industrial fisheries sector include line fishing, gill netting, fish trapping and demersal fish trawling.

Fisheries, aquaculture and coastal resources: social science research in Africa and West Asia.

ICLARM's social science research activities in Africa: The Fisheries Co-Management Project and the Programme for Integrated Development of Artisanal Fisheries in West Africa are discussed. Proposed social science research activities and research needs in Africa and West Asia are also presented.

FISHBASE: an information system to support fisheries and aquaculture research.

The International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM) in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and with the support of the Commission of the European Communities is developing a database (called FISHBASE) to summarize global information on living aquatic resources (fish, crustaceans and molluscs) in a standardized form to be made available on CD-ROM to institutions in developing countries.
