Abstract or Summary
  • "The need to articulate new ways to manage and utilize marine and fisheries resources has become apparent. The paper outlines the critical importance of managing marine resources for small islands countries of the Pacific and focuses on the role that women can play towards achieving sustainable fisheries. The paper looks at two important issues in the context of Pacific Islands. First, it elaborates on the concept of marine stewardship in marine policy making and how it can contribute towards effective management of fisheries resources by reducing transaction costs. Secondly, the paper focuses on ways to increase effective fish utilization by the need to strengthen shore-based activities that can in turn improve fisheries values. Using a cost and benefit perspective, the paper attempts to show the critical role women can strategically play in these two areas towards improving fisheries management and development. Opportunities and challenges in integrating gender issues into mainstream fisheries planning and management are discussed.
