    Nine out of every ten of the world's 30 million people who make a living directly from fishing live in Asia and some 80 percent of them are small-scale fisherfolk. However, the food and livelihood needs of a growing population are running up against limited fishery resources, which are fast depleting in most coastal regions of Asia. This publication contains the results of a study of small-scale fishery along Thailand's Andaman Sea coast, which accounts for up to 14 percent of the country's tota l fish catch. It uses data from the national marine fishery census together with a field study of socio-economic conditions and fishery practices in six representative coastal villages around the bay of Phan-nga, which spreads across 3000 sq km, including 1900 sq km of mangrove. The study also examines the use and incomes from three types of small-scale fishing gear and uses this information along with socio-geographic data to assess sustainable small-scale fishery management options.
