    The Effect of Artificial Reef Installation on the Biosocioeconomics of Small-Scale Fisheries in Ranong Province, Thailand-BOBP/WP/97 1994

    The Government of Thailand felt that installation of suitable Artificial Reefs (ARs) in the coastal waters around the country would contribute towards management of coastal fisheries resources, restrict operation of such efficient methods as trawling in the coastal waters, reduce conflicts among fishermen, and increase opportunities for small-scale fisherfolk to improve their income from fishing. In 1989, ARs were installed in three locations in Ranong Province. The three Ars covered an area o f 50.8 km2, about 9-11 km from the shoreline and at depths ranging from 12 to 17m. The Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP), within the framework of its project RAS/9J/006, Biosocioeconomics of Small-scale Fisheries, agreed to support the implementation of a subproject that would take up as a case study and assess the impact of the ARs by applying biosocioeconomic analytic methods. The investigations between 1991 and 1993 were done under BOBP’s ‘Small-scale Fisherfolk Communities’ project funded by DANIDA and SIDA and the reporting under ‘Bioeconomics of Small-scale Fisheries’ funded by UNDP. This document is a compilation of working documents describing the separate but simultaneously carried out investigations into the suitability of the locations, the environmental conditions around the ARs, colonization of the ARs, enhancement of the resources, the influence of the ARs on the fisheries, and the impact of income changes, if any, on the socioeconomic conditions of the small-scale fish erfolk fishing at the ARs.
