Abstract

This presentation will review the outcomes of research activities undertaken through the History of Marine Animal Populations (HMAP) research initiative in Asia and Australia. HMAP Asia, which is based at Murdoch University, is one of the 16 HMAP sub-projects, and comprises historical case-studies of commercial, artisanal and recreational fisheries of the Indo-Pacific (South Asia, South-East Asia, South-West Pacific and Australia) region. The common themes that have emerged from these case-studies, which range from the ecological and socio-economic impacts of the transformation of small-scale fisheries in the twentieth century to the potential for over-fished populations to recover under appropriate management arrangements, will be reviewed. The presentation will also identify and elaborate upon possible lessons for fisheries management policy-making across the region.
