This paper aims to examine the status of Fish Aggregating Device (Katha) fishery in the river Titas in Bangladesh and development of an alternative Katha fishery management strategy. All Fish Aggregating Devices (Kathas) were recorded through a census survey. Fish catch monitoring facilitated through a regular catch survey of Katha/gear/team in operation. The study employed data collected from the river Titas in Brahmanbaria district of Bangladesh from 1997 to 2002.
This report resulting from 3 years of surveys details the relative contribution of fish to wealth, nutrition, labor, resilience and health among rural Cambodians.
En 2012, la FAO, la Banque mondiale et WorldFish ont publié une étude Hidden Harvest: The global contribution of capture fisheries. Pour soutenir la dynamique croissante de mise en oeuvre des Directives SSF, et en réponse aux Objectifs de développement durable, la FAO, WorldFish et l’Université Duke travaillent en partenariat avec des experts du monde entier pour revisiter et développer la problématique à partir de cette première étude Hidden Harvest.
The present study aimed to map the presence of cages and to profile the socio-economic characteristics of their owners in Lake Victoria Basin Kenya as baseline information to aid in the formation of policies to manage the integration of capture and culture fisheries.
En el 2012, el Banco Mundial, la FAO y WorldFish publicaron un estudio llamado “La Cosecha Oculta: la Contribución Global de la Pesca de Captura.” Para apoyar la implementación de las Directrices PPEs, y en respuesta a los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible, la FAO, WorldFish y la Universidad de Duke están trabajando en asociación con expertos de todo el mundo para revisar y avanzar en el entendimiento de esta problemática a partir del primer estudio de La Cosecha Oculta.
FAO, WorldFish and Duke University are working in partnership with experts globally to revisit and build on the Hidden Harvest study in 2012. Encompassing the pre-harvesting, harvesting and post-harvesting sectors of inland and marine fisheries, the new study asks the questions: 1) What are the social, environmental, economic and governance contributions of small-scale fisheries at global and local scales? 2) What are the key drivers of change in these sectors, including both threats and opportunities?
Fish biodiversity is important for the future sustainability of aquatic resources in Bangladesh. However, stresses due to overfishing, climate change, habitat loss, eutrophication and pollution pose threats to fish biodiversity. This study was designed to investigate the availability of fish species, marketing channel and constraints associated with 5 fish market in order to provide suggestions for efficient management and fish marketing system in Patuakhali district.
Compliance is critical for effective conservation, and non-compliance regularly negates the desired outcomes of the world's marine protected areas. To increase compliance, practitioners must understand why resource users are breaking the rules, why these behaviours continue to occur, and how to effectively confront non-compliance. This study interviewed 682 recreational fishers of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park (GBRMP) to examine the social components of compliance management.
This report details the methodology developed and tested with three universities in the region for the standardized monitoring of fish resources basinwide.
A major driver of change in the Mekong River basin relates to hydropower development and the consequent changes in landscape and natural resource access regime that it induces. In this paper, we examine how the livelihoods of resettlers evolve following resettlement, and examine the determinants of that process. The study takes place in the context of the Theun Hinboun Expansion Project in Lao PDR. Based on longitudinal household surveys conducted before resettlement as well as 1, 2, and 3 years after resettlement, we identify the process of livelihood adaptation in resettled communities.
