    This course book was prepared in support of a training course on fisheries co-management in Indonesia. It introduces the principles and practice of fisheries co-management with the objective of improving knowledge and skills to successfully develop fisheries co-management institutions. The course book is composed of four main modules which specifically address the fundamentals of fisheries co-management, its theoretical structure and the process of starting, planning and implementi ng fisheries co-management, all with a focus in Indonesia. From the numerous examples provided in this book, it is obvious that fisheries co-management has the potential to contribute to almost every sphere of fisheries management in Indonesia. It has a potential to incorporate the ecosystem approach and has proved to be effective in promoting conservation activities, including the protection, mitigation and rehabilitation of natural resources. There is a discussion of the criteria which may be used to assess a fisheries co-management regime in their relation to the type of aquatic ecosystem, the exploited species, the existing socio-political and economic system, and the prevailing rules and regulations. Attention is given to how the decision-making process takes place and the roles and responsibilities of the main stakeholders in co-managing fisheries, namely the community users of fisheries resources and the government. The book pays particular attention to the theory and benefits of community organization as a basis for successfully implementing co-management on the ground. The process of organization involves education, empowerment, developing or revitalizing values and ethics systems, developing notions of independence and partnership, developing organizational and leadership skills, and assisting the community to take action. The participatory action research approach methodology applied to fisheries co-management is outlined. Co-management assessment through monitoring and evaluation procedures is described in detail. Finally, the main aspects of how to develop a fisheries management plan are elucidated using examples from rural areas in Indonesia where fisheries co-management has successfully been implemented.

    Report of the regional workshop of the Asia-Pacific Fishery Commission (APFIC) on mainstreaming fisheries co-management 2005

    A report of the above workshop held from 9 to 12 August 2005 in Siem Reap, Cambodia and attended by 63 participants from APFIC member countries and collaborating and partner institutions and projects. Many agencies (both governmental and non-governmental) are striving to improve the livelihoods of poor people who are dependent on aquatic resources by including them in the planning and implementation of fisheries management. Many countries, especially developing ones, have adopted decentralizatio n as the way to implement future fisheries management which often involves a partnership between government and local communities, i.e. a co-management approach. The challenge is to find a way for co-management to become a mainstream practice of both government and non-government organizations and communities. The objective of the workshop was to develop summary conclusions on the status of co-management in the region and provide some concrete recommendations for action towards mainstreaming fis hery co-management in Asia-Pacific. An action plan and recommendations are included in the report.

    This report gives details of a course in Fishing Vessel Design given at the Fisheries Technical High School, Tegal, Indonesia, from 12 to 31 January 1976, inclusive. The content of the course was designed to assist Planners, i.e. those directly and indirectly concerned with fisheries and fishing vessels, in making informed, sound decisions with respect to procuring, maintaining and operating fishing vessels. While it was in no way intended to produce trained naval architects, the participants w ere introduced to much of the skill, methodology, technology, and foundation knowledge used by naval architects, including physical principles, methods of calculation, design considerations, lines and arrangements, building materials and methods, laws and regulations, economics, and safety. Emphasis was placed upon sketching as a means of communication. Field trips were made to inspect steel and wood shipyards and a modern fishing vessel.
