Abstract or Summary
  • This paper discusses the use of resource assessment surveys as the basis for effective fisheries management drawing on the resource assessment survey of the Arabian Sea coast of Oman. This survey, completed in 2009, has been undertaken in the context of the primary aim of the Oman Ministry of Fisheries Wealth (MFW) being to ensure that fisheries are developed and managed for the advantage of the people of Oman in a manner that is sustainable, maintains biodiversity and is consistent with the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries. The goal of the survey was to provide estimates of the fishable biomass of principal demersal, small pelagic and mesopelagic fish species off the Arabian Sea coast of Oman for ongoing stock assessment of Omani fisheries, to guide development and investment decisions. The MFW is now engaging in the development of a coastal fishing fleet and the assessment of the most appropriate management approach for this fishery. The MFW‟s view is that the resource potential within the country‟s territorial waters (as indicated by the recent fisheries resource assessment survey), limited harvesting capacity, extent of technological advancement, and economic performance of the current traditional fleet, indicates that the current level of exploitation of fish resources is not optimal. Management proposals must therefore be developed in the context of the survey findings. Comparison will also be made with the resource assessment survey completed for the waters of the United Arab Emirates and the subsequent management initiatives developed in Abu Dhabi based on the results of the resource survey.
