Integrated management of coastal fisheries: lessons from initiatives in San Miguel Bay, Philippines
- Coastal fisheries occur in a variety of natural and human settings. In terms of coastal use intensity, fisheries may be viewed to operate in a spectrum ranging from essentially single sector (i.e., fisheries) situations to intense, multisector use of the coastal area (and its relevant terrestrial and marine zones). Issues impacting fisheries multiply through this range requiring increasingly comprehensive and integrated analytic frames and scope of action to sustain fisheries benefits. Coastal fisheries in many parts of the world are moving to more developed stages of the coastal use spectrum, highlighting the need for wider adoption of integrated coastal fisheries management efforts. This case study illustrates one integrated coastal fisheries management effort in the Philippines.
