    Guidelines for designing data collection and sharing systems for co-managed fisheries. Part 1: Practical guide 2005
    Also available in:

    The increasing shift towards co-management has prompted managers to reflect upon their new roles and reconsider information requirements. This technical paper, in two parts, is aimed to meet the growing need among co-managers for guidelines to help design and implement appropriate and cost-effective data collection programmes or systems. Part 1: Practical guide has been written specifically for co-managers and facilitators working in the field and offers simple and practical advice on helping stakeholders identify their information needs in relation to their management objectives and responsibilities, and developing collaborative ways of collecting and sharing the information in the most effective way. Part 2: Technical guidelines provides more technical detail on each of the sections in the Practical guide, including examples of the types of data that might be of interest to different stakeholders, data collection methods and sources, the design of sampling pro grammes, and guidance on data analysis and interpretation. Part 2 is aimed particularly at Department of Fisheries and extension staff, research agencies and academic institutions, but can also provide field practitioners with an additional resource that can be referenced when necessary. Together, Parts 1 and 2 draw on relevant elements of the literature and the output of DFID-funded research, as well as the experiences and expressed needs of co-managers currently designing or prepar ing to design their own data collection systems.

    This technical paper provides guidelines for an integrated management strategy for floodplain river fisheries. The paper is written in two separate volumes. Part 1 presents the guidelines in a ‘user-friendly’ format, to promote their uptake by fishery managers, policy makers and field officers. Recommendations are given both on the alternative technical tools which may be used to manage river fisheries, and on the institutional factors required for their success. The highly variable ecological a nd social characteristics of floodplain rivers demand locally-appropriate and adaptive solutions, rather than a single ‘blueprint’ approach. The recommended management strategy allocates responsibilities both hierarchically and spatially, and promotes the effective collaboration of government, communities and other stakeholders at appropriate levels. The more technical Part 2 describes the underlying research work which provided the basis for these management guidelines. Investigations were m ade during four projects funded by the UK Department For International Development (DFID), in Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Nepal and Thailand, between 1992 and 1997. Part 2 describes the floodplain river environments, the fish stocks and the fishing practices found at some of these study sites. Justification is given for a range of technical management tools for river fisheries, including the use of access controls and reserves, and the manipulation of water levels within flood control and irri gation schemes to give benefits to fishing as well as agriculture. Final chapters in Part 2 describe lessons learnt on the management of enhancement fisheries (e.g. based on fish stocking), and on the prospects and limitations of participatory management for these resources.

The more technical Part 2 describes the underlying research work which provided much of the basis for these management guidelines.

Part 2 describes the floodplain river environments, the fish stocks and the fishing practices found at some of these study sites. Justification is given for a range of technical management tools for river fisheries, including the use of access controls and reserves, and the manipulation of water levels within flood control and irrigation schemes to give benefits to fishing as well as agriculture. Final chapters in Part 2 describe lessons learnt on the management of enhancement fisheries (e.g. based on fish stocking), and on the prospects and limitations of participatory management for these resources.
