Abstract or Summary
  • It is recognized that small-scale fishing communities are grappled with an array of problems, including overfishing of fishing resources, lack of alternative sources of employment, rapid population growth, displacement in coastal areas due to industrial development and tourism, pollution and environmental degradation etc.. Discussions on the issue of overfishing in small scale fishery have engaged the attention of fishery experts in recent years more than the past due to the collapse of world fishery. Overfishing is prevalent at industrialized, large scale fishing and small scale traditional fishing at present. Policy makers believe regulation on fishing practices can bring about a solution to the overfishing. Experiences in Sri Lanka suggest that addressing root causes of overfishing at small scale is an essential element of fishery management. This paper will analyze two case studies from Koggala and Rekawa lagoon fishery in Sri Lanka, which shows as to why small scale fishers are compelled to overexploit the fisheries resources.
