Building capacity for sustainable fisheries management in the Wallacea region


Ref: 16002
Type: Main Project
Project Leader: Dr Tim Coles
Lead Institution: Operation Wallacea Trust
Host Country Institutions: Forkani and Yayasan Bajo Mattila, Wakatobi Government
Start Date: 2007-05-01
End Date: 2011-03-31
Funding: £150,000.00

Status: Completed
Regions: East Asia
Countries: Indonesia
Purpose: Eastern Indonesia has the most biologically diverse reefs on the planet yet throughout most of this area unsustainable artisanal fisheries are severely damaging the reefs. Indonesia needs to find a way to sustainably manage these reef fisheries both to protect the biodiversity value but also to provide income to local communities. This project demonstrates a model for how reef fisheries in the vast majority of areas where there is no agreed ownership of reef sections by individuals, families or villages (ownership would always be a preferred option but is not practicable unfortunately in large parts of Indonesia)) could be managed sustainably by restricting access to the fishery via a registration scheme, empowering local communities to manage their own fisheries via fishery performance data and using business income to reduce overall fishing effort by operating a ‘buy out’ scheme.
Outputs: 1. Fisheries co-management established and functioning under the KFF 2. Effective enforcement of fisheries regulations 3. Fisheries & biodiversity assessment program established & functioning 4. Alternative income sources developed to provide ‘buy out’s of fishing licences and reduce fishing effort
