Changes in Fishing Activities After the Coastal Zone Management Project
This paper aims to evaluate the changes in the fishing activities of local fishermen after the implementation of the coastal zone management (CZM) project at Pakklong subdistrict, Pathew District, Chumphon Province by monitoring the CPUE (catch per unit effort), and the fishing season and fishing ground. The five observed fishing gears in the study site (Arnupapboon, 2004), which include one type of prevailing fishing gear (collapsible crab trap) and four types of seasonal fishing gears (squid cast net, Indo-Pacific mackerel gill net, crab gill net and shrimp trammel net), were monitored and their CPUE data were recorded.
