Small pelagic fisheries investigations in the Philippines. Part I: History of the fishery
- The social and economic importance of Philippine small pelagic fisheries promoted the need for a review of accumulated data on these fisheries and an investigation of their current status. These objectives were the prime directives behind the Small Pelagics Management (SPM) project carried out by ICLARM and the Philippine Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR). This brief paper presents a synthesis of some of the major findings of the reviews of secondary data on Philippine small pelagic fisheries.
