Abstract or Summary
  • The 2005 Gulf of Mexico hurricanes devastated not only fishing boats but also many businesses interdependent with fishermen: processing plants, ice plants, boat builders, net makers and other suppliers. Fuel prices and other expenses have increased. Wholesale catch prices are down due to damaged markets, lack of storage facilities and, in the shrimp fishery, imports of farmed shrimp. We commonly discuss ecosystem-based management. We need to include humans in that ecosystem, and use this opportunity to improve: ‌• Fishery sustainability ‌• Stewardship of the biophysical environment ‌• Economic justice for the fishing community ‌• Understanding and communication among fishery stakeholders This paper draws on case studies to identify practices that have worked around the world, in Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, the Middle East and South and North America. Each program has been successful in its context. In this paper, I examine what factors contributed to the success of selected cases, and analyze whether part (or all) of the program would be applicable in the Gulf of Mexico Coastal region (Gulf Coast), given differences in physical and cultural environments. Any program that draws on finite resources needs to be evaluated regularly, and improved where possible. In this paper I propose a framework for program evaluation that will enable evaluators to determine where the program is succeeding, identify challenges and make improvements.
