Abstract

Coral reefs provide a substantial part of the protein intake in Southeast Asia. Major destructive forces include excessive sedimentation, related to deforestation, and various forms of destructive fishing, especially blast fishing. The most promising approaches involve management and evaluation at the municipal level. This concept can be extrapolated to an adaptive management scheme involving community-based development specialists, cross-trained in environmental and fishery monitoring, who assist municipalities in the development of regulations concerning local reefs and associated ecosystems. Reef management can be expedited in many areas with the establishment of alternative livelihood programs to alleviate excessive demands on the reef resources. -from Author
