Abstract or Summary
  • Fisheries and agriculture form the backbone of the Solomon Islands economy. The population is around half a million people, of whom 94 percent live within five kilometers of the coast. Women are key to effective fisheries management and development in Solomon Islands. They make up half of the community for community-based resource management and development, they fish, they do aquaculture, they markets seafood products, they are the main influence on household consumption of fish, and they support men in fisheries activities. However, fisheries management and development activities in Solomon Islands, like in the rest of the world, have often been based on the assumption that only men fish, and that benefits provided to men will filter through to the rest of communities. Building on 42 fieldwork interviews conducted across three Provinces in Solomon Islands, this paper focuses on women selling marine products in urban markets. We consider the opportunities available to them in the sector and the challenges confronting them. We argue that for resource managers to effectively promote economically and ecologically sustainable coastal fisheries in the Solomon Islands the conventional fisheries management focus on biological factors and the activities conducted on fishing boats is too narrow. Multidisciplinarity and consideration of the whole supply chain, including gender relations and the gendered division of labour, are vital tools for improving outcomes.
