Fisheries, Aquaculture and Coastal Zones in Developing Countries, mainly of the East Africa and Southeast Asia
This concept paper is a preparation study for the Sida's Marine and Coastal Zone Initiative. It describes countrywise the state of fisheries in eastern and southern Africa and in southeast Asia. Suggestions are made for future cooperation between Sida and developing countries for sustainable coastal management. Seminars/training courses in coastal sciences and demonstration sites are proposed for an integrated management of coastal zones. Technical advice is further proposed for strengthening international management of fisheries through regional fishery management bodies.
