Abstract or Summary
  • Hundreds of coastal communities located in Phang-nga Bay were exacerbated by Tsunami explosion. Fishers and fish cage farmers accidentally lost their means of fishing and culturing operations to stabilize their conventional livelihoods. The article is placed with two objectives in order to simply describe the re-building of coastal community for restoring sustainable resources. The first objective is to identify dilemmas, which were fishers and fish farmers confronted, have obstructed to restore household economy and livelihoods reaching at the pre-Tsunami level. The second objective is to describe strategy used to facilitate fishers’ participation in coastal resource management. To figure out the two objectives, interviews with fishers were conducted at hazard sites particular in Phang-nga Bay. Data and information concerned the relief action plan were gathered from the Department of fisheries (DOF), Thailand and any agencies related. The DOF took a major role to formulate relief action plan. The agency provided an immediate financial relief to lost/damaged fishers and fish farmers. They immediately received the amounts of the financial aid to carry on their conventional livelihoods. They also obtained the certain amount of financial assistance for re-constructing their means of fishing operations and fish cage cultures. On the other hand, fishers and fish farmers themselves agree to conventionally utilize the same fishing grounds for capture fisheries and fish cage culture as they did before the Tsunami disaster. This is a customary strategy to manage users and newcomers entering into fisheries. The dilemmas were mainly concerned the difficulty to receive the relief and inadequate amount of financial assistance for re-engagement in fisheries. Thus, the relief action plan is strategy vital to re-build household economy. In addition, fishers’ self-management is traditional strategy to manage priority of resource utilization.
