This study aims to derive and disseminate lessons learned on fisher participation in fisheries management as well as ways of supporting livelihoods through responsible fisheries management. It is intended primarily for government staff, non-governmental organizations and staff in other agencies working on artisanal fisheries management and poverty alleviation in developing countries.
