Current national statistics do not capture the true value of Myanmar’s hilsa fisheries. As a result, investment in the sustainable and inclusive management of its artisanal hilsa fisheries is limited. This study estimates the economic value of artisanal hilsa fisheries in Myanmar, using artisanal income data to estimate use value and a benefit tran...

Hilsa shad is one of the most important fisheries in Myanmar, providing livelihoods and nutrition to thousands of vulnerable communities. However, overfishing and habitat destruction are putting at risk the sustainability of the fishery. This study aims to expand the knowledge of the ecology of the hilsa fishery, by discussing the seasonality and p...

The hilsa shad is one of the most commercially valuable fish species in Myanmar, but it is under threat. As part of a project designing a system of incentive-based management for hilsa fisheries in Myanmar, this study explores how fiscal tools such as licence fees and taxation could be used to finance the system. We clearly demonstrate that by incr...

This study provides key insights for the development of incentive-based conservation schemes for hilsa in Myanmar’s Ayeyarwady Delta. The results of a choice experiment suggest on average a willingness to participate in such conservation schemes. Some potential management options for conservation schemes such as additional closed fishing periods an...
Article
Full-text available
Effective implementation of management interventions is often limited by uncertainty, particularly in small-scale and developing-world fisheries. An effective intervention must have a measurable benefit, and evaluation of this benefit requires an understanding of the historical and socio-ecological context in which the intervention takes place. Thi...

Conservation payments are increasingly advocated as a way to meet both social and ecological objectives, particularly in developing countries, but these payments often fail to reach the 'right' individuals. The Government of Bangladesh runs a food compensation scheme that aims to contribute to hilsa (Tenualosa ilisha) conservation by improving the...
Data
Best Linear Unbiased Predictors (BLUPs) for the random effects for the probability of receiving compensation. The x axes show the effect of living in a particular district (a) or village (b) in terms of the difference in probability of receiving compensation from the intercept. Error bars show the 95% confidence interval based on the conditional va...

Technical Report
Full-text available
Fisheries play an important role in meeting global food demands. But coastal fisheries are in decline due to overfishing – and fisheries management in developing world countries is also complicated by significant poverty levels. In response, fisheries managers are increasingly using economic incentive-based approaches to reward beneficiaries – such...

In April 2015, the Cayman Islands gave full legal protection to all sharks and other elasmobranchs throughout its Exclusive Economic Zone. This was the culmination of a research programme initiated in 2008 to determine the status of sharks in Cayman waters and assess the need for their conservation. A Facebook linked citizen science scheme and inte...

Article
Full-text available
Hilsa (Tenualosa ilisha) fishery management in Bangladesh is a rare example of ‘carrot-and-stick’ management in developing world fisheries. Impact evaluation traditionally relies on the projection of counterfactuals and so, due to the limited availability of baseline social and ecological data in the hilsa fishery, there has been no rigorous impact...

Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) is a powerful economic tool that gives positive conditional incentives for the provision of additional ecosystem services over the status quo, which has been used widely in terrestrial conservation. Interest in the concept of marine PES has recently emerged, but the fluid, transboundary and often common pool na...

Conservation Trust Funds (CTFs) are a source of sustainable financing for long-term biodiversity conservation, in particular for protected areas management. Through a review of 12 case studies from Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Australasia, this research report provides a broad overview of how to create a CTF, describing its legal...
