Presenter

ABSTRACT:

Based on long-term anthropological fieldwork since 2005 in Palawan province, Philippines, this presentation will provide an overview of two aspects of my ongoing research: the live reef fish for food trade (LRFT) and the interactions between fishing and tourism. I will focus on current resource use trends among fishers in the LRFT, the distinctive problems associated with governing the LRFT, and discuss some of the prospects that a recent boom in tourism offers for transitions to more sustainable patterns of resource use among fishers.

Biography of the speaker:

Mike’s research is focused on the social and political aspects of marine resource management in the Asia-Pacific. He recently completed his PhD in the Resource Management in Asia-Pacific Program at the Australian National University. His thesis examined fishers’ responses to marine resource regulations in Palawan province, Philippines. More recent work in the Philippines has focused on analysing a quota system for the live reef fish for food trade and the interactions between fishing and tourism. He is currently a Research Associate at the School of Social Sciences, University of Queensland
