Bi-annual Project Progress Report of Integrated Coastal Resources Management in Pulau Langkawi
The rehabilitation from the tsunami devastation has been progressed and the fishing activity has been gradually resumed to the extent of almost 50-70% compared with the pre-tsunami condition. The fish landing data collection and marine biological survey resumed. The movement to materialization of the zoning arrangement was accelerated with repeated meeting among the fishers concerned including neighboring fishing village. To realize this conception, the new institution, Fishery Resources Management Committee (FRMC) in KEN Kuala Teriang, was formed. The fishermen training course on CBRM was conducted in Penang including the study tour. The volunteer activity by the women’s group maintains their high morale in contribution. The training course in processing seasoned/dried fish satay was conducted. Strengthening of the accounting capacity with the women’s group was further focused with introduction of computerized account and bookkeeping system.
