Abstract
  • The over 7,000 islands that make up the Philippines are often referred to as "the center of the center" in terms of global marine biodiversity, but this abundant marine life is also a key source of livelihoods. In 2009, the reported Philippines fish ‘production' was 4.1 million tonnes, valued at 2.65 billion USD. About 34% of the 77 million Filipinos live below the poverty line, and over 55% live in coastal municipalities. Per capita fish consumption is about 53 kg/person/year and the fisheries sector employed over 800,000 people in 1990. There is enormous pressure on Philippines' fisheries for a source of food and livelihoods. In order for fisheries management to take this into consideration, they must have a baseline to be able to measure economic progress or decline. Here we explore the design of a fisheries economic baseline study through the case study of Tañon Strait in the Philippines. The economic component of this baseline study aims to measure the current livelihoods gained from small-scale fishing using monetary cost and revenue indicators, as well as non-monetary indicators, such as assets, access to health institutions and social networks. We discuss a combination of qualitative and quantitative approaches used to understand the seasonal aspect of livelihoods, and how to create meaningful indicators. We finish by showing how the economics used in this baseline study can be used in the future for fisheries management decision-making by allowing policy makers and stakeholders to use robust indicators that can be assessed retroactively.
