Abstract or Summary
  • A rapid increase in the Thai trawl and push net fisheries had led to over fishing and thus fishery resource degradation. Catch per unit effort decreased from over 300 kg/hr in the past 30 years to less than 20 kg/hr recently. The impact has placed a greater burden on coastal fishermen who have limited alternative fishing grounds. In response to the degradation of resources, Thai fishermen adjusted their fishing gears, turning to the "available" resources. Examples were anchovy fisheries in place of small trawl fisheries. Nevertheless such a response led to the degradation of another resource. Ecological, economic and social factors can explain such patterns of resource exploitation. Societal cost - a concept being developed within the ECOST project - includes ecological cost, economic cost, and social cost to form a measure that would better elaborate the value of Thai fisheries resources. The objective is to help improve fisheries management, to enhance the living conditions of the coastal poor and ensure the sustainability of Thai fisheries.
