Living Aquatic Resources - management and knowledge base

Project Details


Management of both freshwater and marine fisheries depends on knowledge that meets two related but independent tests: it must be accurate and it must be perceived as accurate by stakeholders. Incongruence between the knowledge base and management institutions is one important reason for overexploitation and the resulting impoverishment in fisheries dependent communities. This project addressed this relationship based on two case studies, marine coastal fisheries in Vietnam and riverine fisheries in the Mekong River in Laos.
