Harvest Reserves in floodplain river fisheries - Protecting fish to increase catches. Training workshop materials.
This presentation is one of a series of five presenting key outputs from FMSP floodplain projects, carried out in the Asian region between 1992 and 2005.
The materials contained within this document are provided for adaptation or use in workshops aimed at the selection and/or management of harvest reserves. They are based on the 'Management Guidelines' produced by FMSP Project R7043 (Hoggarth, 2000, see next slide), which may be provided as a handout. They may also be used in conjunction with the related presentation providing 'key messages' for harvest reserves.
The proposed workshop structure uses a step by step approach to providing the selection and management guidelines, with participants applying the selection criteria to their own locality and then considering management needs and options over several stages. This approach allows participants to contribute their own selection criteria to the process, which may improve the process and help with adoption. Where reserves already exist, workshop participants may usefully consider how well these meet the identified criteria or guidelines at each stage.
