Possible impacts of a marine protected area on the artisanal fisheries on Inhaca Island, Mozambique With a focus on fishing grounds and transportation




Inhaca is an Island located inside Ponta do Ouro Partial Marine Reserve and inhibitants on the Island are depending on artisanal fisheries as one of the dominating livelihoods. The main purpose with this study was to find out to what extent this new reserve could affect the artisanal fisheries on Inhaca by collecting basic information about their fishery such as fishing grounds and transportation facilities. This was made with the method of semi-structured interviews with 32 fishermen on Inhaca born and raised on the island. The fishing grounds were compiled into a map to see if they are located inside or outside the new restricted area. The result showed that the majority of the fishing grounds were situated within the new restricted zone.
