Abstract

The State Government of Perak, Malaysia, is currently looking for the most appropriate strategy to be implemented in Pulau Sembilan State Park after it was urgently closed due to a drastic degradation in its ecosystem. This study developed an integrated economic and biophysical model to compare the effectiveness of alternative strategies including site closure (temporal and other), site access fees and bag limits. Both fisher economic welfare and ecosystem improvements are considered in the evaluation of strategies. It is shown that less stringent management strategies can be more effective at balancing ecosystem benefits against socioeconomic ones.
