Abstract or Summary
  • Abalone, Haliotis asinina, is a high value shellfish for export trade that provide cash income to fishing households in some coastal communities in the Philippines. Stock enhancement is one of the fisheries management strategies that enable recovery of overfished stocks through release of juveniles and consequent stock increase through recruitment. This option is frequently associated with high investments, often using government funds, and involves critical participation of fishers and other fishery stakeholders. With the primary goal of developing a community-based stock enhancement protocol that will contribute to rehabilitation of abalone stocks and supplement fishing incomes, hatchery-bred abalone juveniles were released in a stock enhancement demonstration site in coral patches around Barangay Molocaboc, an island within the Sagay Marine Reserve in the Visayan Sea in central Philippines. This paper aims to estimate the costs and benefits of producing abalones for commercial trade through community-based stock enhancement. Results of a seven-year community-based stock enhancement activity showed that the strategy is feasible under tri-party stakeholder collaboration involving: (1) an organized group of fishers and traders that executes the project activities, (2) the relevant local government for oversight and regulatory functions, and (3) a technical donor organization that provides science-based project advice. Community-based stock enhancement proved economically viable considering lower cost and ease of abalone grow-out in near-shore reef areas. It also offered equitable economic opportunities that benefit women, older men and children that may glean abalones in coral patches in intertidal zones instead of diving for abalones in remote reef areas.
