Abstract or Summary
  • Ashurar beel, an open perennial capture fishery of 400 ha, and located in north west Bangladesh was familiarized as indiscriminant and uncontrolled fishing by in-migrant people before being brought under Community Based Fisheries Management project in 1996. Caritas, a non-government organization and a lead partner of the project undertakes various extensions and process of empowering fishers to carry out their own development and manage their renewable resource. Village based groups with 527 fishers and 77 women were organized. A Beel Management Committee was formed representing all the fishers and women groups. Training to enhance skills, awareness of sustainable fishery management, adult literacy, micro credit and other support for improving the reality of life have been provided. Fishers established a permanent sanctuary in 8 ha deepest part of the beel and enforced a ban on fishing during selective months in the whole beel so that brood fish could spawn and fry could grow and spread throughout the beel. As a result catch per unit fishing effort, restore bio-diversity and fish consumption are all reported to have increased substantially.The paper summarizes the experiences of Caritas in management strategies in terms of community development and to enhance the fish production in beel. Enhancement by conservation (sanctuary) measures for natural fish by the fishing communities have given a new impetus to management. Project support has enabled fisher communities to establish management committee. These have taken within their means and are appropriate to the nature of the waterbody.
