The community may not have the capacity to be an effective and equitable governing institution. 10. Actions by user groups outside the immediate community may undermine or destroy the management activities undertaken by the community. 11. Particular local resource characteristics, such as fish migratory patterns, may make it difficult or impossible for the community to manage the resource. 12. The need to develop a consensus from a wide range of interests may lengthen the decision-making process and result in weaker, compromised measures.

Existing examples in Asia and the Pacific have been documented over a wide discontinuous geographical range (Ruddle, 1994). Many of these systems play a valuable role in fisheries management and will be useful into the future, locally and nationally. Traditional or customary co-management is a formal recognition of the informal systems as used, for example, in Vanuatu and Fiji. Co-management can serve as a mechanism to legally recognize and protect these traditional and customary systems and to specify authority and responsibility between the community and government.

The legal, political, institutional, economic and sociocultural feasibility need to be considered (Borrini-Feyerabend, 1996). A household census may be conducted to collect socio-economic data on the community to initially identify problems, needs and opportunities. Community integration of field workers and community organizers can be a long process and requires those workers to have the skills, energy, commitment and personality to listen, share and work with the people of the community on an equal basis.
