This policy paper briefly describes FMSP work on the management of floodplain river fisheries. This work focused initially on understanding the ecology of these complex resources and describing the impacts of flood control systems. It has since gone on to develop a series of guidelines for managing floodplain fisheries, taking into account the needs of the poor and the other users of this valuable but complex natural system.
