This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects
run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy
Principally based on Projects R8467, R8118 and R8196. Decision makers
responsible for fisheries now have best practices to help them change
fisheries policies and regulations for the better. Competing demands,
environmental degradation and climate change mean that fisheries are
among the most difficult resources to manage. The best practices help
planners to realise the potential of fisheries to reduce poverty while
maximising economic benefits in the long term. Many problems with
fisheries have non-fisheries causes—social and policy issues need to be
taken into account along with resource concerns. Drawing together best
practices is strengthening the growing global call for better fisheries
management and influencing policy change throughout East Africa and
South East Asia. Already, planners have used these practices to revive
fisheries in post-tsunami India and develop fisheries in Sierra Leone.
