Abstract or Summary
  • In spite of being one of the leading fish exporters, fishery resources in Thai waters had been degraded. Increasing fuel cost reduced a number of commercial fishing vessels in Thai waters. While trawl was the main fishing gear for commercial fisheries, their main catches were trash fish for fish meal. Suffering from fishery resource degradation were coastal fishermen who accounted for 92% of total fishing population while their catch contribution was around 6% in term of volume and 19% in term of value. Limited access to alternative source of income among coastal fishermen in Thailand constrained mobility from the fishing sector. Capacity reduction through buy back program for trawl and push net was proposed. Nevertheless effort control capacity via monitoring, control and enforcement on fishing fleet should be a priori. Fishery management regulation could be improved via collaboration among fishermen through fishing associations as well as fishing community organizations and the government agencies.
