Social and Ecological Linkages in Marine Resource Use: A Case Study of the Primeiras e Segundas Archipelago in Mozambique




Implementing successful marine protected areas (MPAs) requires an understanding of local marine ecosystems, fisheries and human communities. A rapid assessment conducted in October 2006 was used to identify resource use patterns in the Primeiras and Segundas (P&S) archipelago in Mozambique, by examining data on local marine fisheries, demographic and economic context, as well as the current resource governance regime. Findings suggest that resources users employ low-selectivity fishing gear due to a combination of factors, including institutional weakness, resource dependence by coastal communities, and economic importance of target species, thus threatening the viability of local fisheries and ecological integrity of the area.
