Community-based Fisheries Management System under a Limited Entry
MetadataShow full item record
In the present paper, the meanings of open access and limited entry and various ways of fisheries management systems are illustrated. Further, the meaning of community-based fisheries management system (CBFM) and its place out of various fisheries management systems is clarified. Japanese experiences reveal that the CBFM can be developed, only when fishermen conceive that fisheries resources are owned by them. Such a circumstance appears, sometimes after the government granted fishing rights to fishermen. Granting fishing rights to fishermen could be the best opportunity for fishermen to establish their own organization, although it may be a primitive one at its initial stage. Right to fish and the functions of fishermen's organization must be legally supported by national laws. Revision of national fishery law is a MUST for all Asian countries in the development of the CBFM.
