Abstract or Summary
  • Fisheries co-management is the institutional model of choice to maintain and rebuild fishery resources in the small-scale sector. This paper argues that the transfer of regulatory and property rights from the central state to multi-stakeholder bodies, including resource users, and local government, can only achieve sectoral efficiency goals - such as maximising wealth generated from fisheries or other socially desirable optima - if they are accompanied by efforts to address the vulnerability and social exclusion of the new rights-holders and decision-makers. Case studies from West and Central African countries are presented to indicate how resource rebuilding and poverty reduction are addressed jointly by strengthening both co-management systems and the livelihoods of fishery resource users.
