Chapter Summary

A team of researchers and students studied the relation between household livelihoods and resource conservation among artisanal fishers along the Malindi Coast, a stretch of about 125 km on the Indian Ocean. The project was comprised of four main surveys and four support studies. This concluding chapter discusses about the surveys, which covered the characteristics of fishers and fishing, fish landings, trading and marketing of fish, and livelihoods of fisher households. The main focus of the project was on income diversification of fishers, the pressure on marine resources and the relation between the two. Total income of fishers, which included earnings from fishing, farming and employment, was lowest in remote locations. The chapter explores the relation between household incomes and resource conservation.

Keywords: artisanal fishers; fish landings; fisher households; income diversification; Malindi Coast; marine resources; trading
