Oceans & Fish

Oceans and coastal environments are home to tremendous biodiversity, provide food to over a billion people, and livelihoods for hundreds of millions more. But fisheries are common-pool resources and therefore subject to systematic overexploitation. Economic analysis, in combination with sound biological assessments, can help create the political will and technical knowledge to implement strong fisheries management (or co-management) systems, marine protected areas, and ocean infrastructure that maintain the economic value of fisheries and oceans over the long term. CSF’s Oceans and Fish program provides training for local resource managers and targeted economic analyses to guide public investments and policy decisions.

Fisheries and marine conservation initiatives in Indonesia primarily focus on management of specific species, national and subnational level fisheries policy, and Marine Protected Areas. While such initiatives often use a mix of scientific and socio-economic approaches, economic tools and analysis tend to be underutilized.

CSF is proud to introduce our 2019-2020 Indonesia Marine Fellows. Over the next year, these 10 researchers will collect and analyze data to support sustainable fisheries and marine resource policy and management in Indonesia. Read on to learn about their individual projects and policy goals. Stay tuned for more news from the field as these projects develop.

Accelerating fisheries reform through economic analysis and capacity building for Indonesian Fisheries Management Areas

In recent years, Indonesia’s Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) has made bold moves towards fisheries policy reform. Efforts to improve national fisheries management have included combating illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing activities, and bans on destructive fishing gear within Indonesian Fisheries Management Areas (FMAs).

CSF is working with MMAF to develop a coherent national strategy for a sustainable fisheries management, including access, inputs, and output controls, that will maximize the value of Indonesia’s fishery resources.

Specifically, our role includes:

Economic Tools for Marine Conservation & Policy

Have you ever wondered how marine conservation can benefit local fishermen, coastal communities, or people in general? Have you ever considered the benefits of protecting coral reefs, seagrass, and mangroves ecosystems from a human perspective? At Conservation Strategy Fund, we know that understanding the economic costs and benefits of conservation is crucial to success in sustaining natural ecosystems.
