Abstract or Summary
  • In Tanzania, the overall objective of the National Fisheries Policy is to develop a robust, competitive and efficient fisheries sector that contributes to food security, nutrition, growth of the national economy and improvement of the wellbeing of fisheries stakeholders. The overall goal of fisheries management is to produce sustainable biological, social, and economic benefits from renewable aquatic resources. However, the main constraints in fisheries sector of Tanzania are lack of reliable, accurate, adequate and up - to - date fisheries data.  The use of illegal fishing gears, law enforcement, infrastructure, human capacity and financial resources are among other constraints. In realising this, government agreed to opt for co-management i.e. community participation in fisheries management so that fishing communities be used in fishery-dependent monitoring i.e. to participate on data gathering, control and surveillance as, this may enhance a feeling of “ownership” among the community members and motivate them to implement conservation measures.  This can be done in the absence of human resources (fisheries expert).  Unfortunately, all these needs human and financial resources as the key factors in fisheries management. This paper is an attempt to devise ways to improve the management of fishery resources through Beach Management Units who involved in data collection and conservation of fishery resources.  It describes how Beach Management Units were established, used as data enumerators, how it cost for fisheries Development Division to collect fisheries data and its implication on fisheries resources.
