Estimating the maximum sustainable yield for coastal fisheries: A case study in Nui Thanh District, Quang Nam Province, Viet Nam
MetadataShow full item record
Many government reports recently indicate that the coastal fisheries of Viet Nam have experienced overfishing and overcapacity. Although few fishery management studies had been conducted to address the situation, no quantitative research had been carried out, possibly because of too much aggregation of data considering the different types of fishing operations that catch various species from different fishing grounds. Using the currently available data with some new data collected, an analysis was conducted to estimate the maximum sustainable yield (MSY) and the level of fishing effort in the coastal fisheries of Nui Thanh District in Quang Nam Province, Viet Nam. The ultimate goal is to determine the most appropriate economical fisheries management policy for the sustainability of coastal fisheries in Quang Nam Province in particular and the whole of Viet Nam in general.
