Chapter Summary

Four independent surveys reviewed artisanal fishers, fish landings, fish traders and fisher households respectively. The survey on fish landings and the household survey were restricted to 4 selected landing sites that differed in nearness to Marine Protected Areas, where fishing conditions were presumably better, and that also differed in access to employment opportunities. The 'Fisher Survey' was carried out between June and October, 1999, and covered 5 tracts of coastline, each represented by 2 landing sites. At each landing site 20 fishers were randomly selected and interviewed, either on-site or at their homes, resulting in 40 fishers for each coastal tract. The survey of fish landings is herein referred to as 'Catch Survey'. Fish catch data were recorded between May, 1999, and March, 2001, at four landing sites, Ngomeni LS, Mayungu LS, Uyombo LS and Takaungu.
