Abstract or Summary
  • This paper discusses sustainable development of Yemeni fisheries towards achievement of Millennium Development Goals (MDG) and stakeholder aspiration. Yemen is considered a Least Developed Country ranking 148 among 174 countries in terms of the Human Development Index. In terms of food security, Yemen is classified as a Low-Income and Food Deficit Country and imports over 75% of its main staple, wheat. Out of Yemen’s twelve MDG targets, none were identified as probably achievable, two as potentially achievable and seven as unlikely to be achieved. The fisheries sector has been identified as a means of achieving development and effort is rapidly increasing. Under these open access conditions there is a potential threat to the fisheries resources and lack of catch / effort data or status of stocks increases this uncertainty.
