Description: Marine management in the Coral Triangle has primarily been approached as an effort to conserve biological diversity and ecosystem health. However, wild caught fisheries are also vital to local food security and incomes. The purpose of my project is to better understand the role that effective fisheries management has or can have in achieving objectives in the Coral Triangle for: food security, income security, poverty alleviation and avoidance, and overall well-being of coastal communities.
