Integrating formal and customary approaches to responsible fisheries: A case study of district fisheries services in Nusa Tenggara Barat province, Lombok, Indonesia
The Indonesian island, Lombok Timur, has made notable efforts towards implementing the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries. In particular, a framework has been established for participative coastal fisheries management. The use of customary law (awig-awig) to support fisheries management plans has proved most suitable for Lombok culture. The institutions of KPPL (community management committees) and KKPK (the district fisheries management advisory committee) that have been set up locally have been working very well, showing the importance of involving local communities to achieve sustainable fisheries management.
