Abstract or Summary
  • Thailand has been one of the most important fish exporting country, in spite of the degradation in her marine resources. Small scale fisheries accounted for more than 80 percent of the total marine fisheries households in this country. Fisheries had been considered the important source of food, income, employment and way of life among coastal dwellers. Lack of scientific information on fisheries resources constrained effective fishery management in Thailand. Strict sanitary and environmental requirements constrained access to the markets. Still there are provisions in WTO Agreements. Enhancing capacity in fisheries management, increasing awareness on the environmental impact as well as appropriate technology for sustainable development in harvesting, processing and trading sector, and better understanding on the existing WTO trade provisions can have a significant contribution on human development in Thai fisheries. There was a need for human development for fisheries trade liberalization, building the capacity in fisheries management for sustainable fisheries as well as building awareness and understanding on existing WTO provisions in relevance to fisheries trade.
