Sample text

Managers are often the critical link between the resource or user communities on the one hand and government, non governmental organizations (NGOs) or aid agencies on the other. They must be informed enough to be able to convey in simple terms the essentials, complexities and needs of the fisheries they steward to build the necessary understanding and constituency for support, action and change. 1 25 What managers need to know about biology and ecology Back to basics Once fishery objectives have been set, fishery managers need to address questions such as how many fish or how many fishers can be accommodated, what gears should be used and where and when can they be used to get the best yields each year from the fishery.

Chapter 12 explains the evolution of the demand for information and the place of indicators in that demand. It explains a process for developing a system of indicators and examines the various functions of indicators in fisheries management: representation, measurement, audit and control, and reporting and communication. It examines the various types of indicators that can be used and the way in which they can be organised. Finally, it outlines some of the main challenges associated with development and application of indicators, including reaching a suitable compromise between the need for simplicity and the conflicting need for realism in a system of indicators, the need to institutionalise the set of indicators, capacity limitations and information gaps and uncertainty.

Given the diversity of life histories amongst exploited species, expanding market demand, increasing threats to species and habitats, and pressures from a growing diversity of stakeholders, managing fisheries resources effectively and in a sustainable way is a major challenge that calls for biological and ecological understanding of exploited species and the social and economic context of the fishery. Moreover, the lines are increasingly blurred between traditional and commercial fishery practices for food, and activities such as mariculture, restocking, artificial reefs, ecotourism and no-take MPAs.
