Abstract or Summary
  • Relentless overfishing, illegal and unreported catches, environmentally damaging fishing methods and unwanted by-catches are some of the challenges to fisheries management. Community based fisheries management and co-management are believed to be effective methodologies to bring about sustainable utilization of fisheries resources. Interestingly, indigenous resource management practices among small scale fishers, at certain sites, have been bale to protect the natural eco-systems and achieve higher levels of livelihood security in the face of changing social, economic and biological contexts since ancient times. This paper attempts to present two case studies on indigenous community based fisheries management from Sri Lanka. The case studies are based on the traditional beach seine fisheries management in Waduruppa and traditional fish kraal for prawn fishery in Rekawa lagoon in Sri Lanka.
