Ecosystem approach for fisheries management assessment for lobster fisheries and proposed intervention management actions in fisheries management area 573 in Indonesia
Lombok Tengah District is one of the regions in West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) Province of Indonesia, which has a high diversity of marine resources including lobster resources. It is situated in southern coast of NTB, and part of Fisheries Management Area (FMA) 573. However, the utilization of lobster resources has not been carried out properly, following the principles of sustainable fisheries i.e. prohibited fishing gear operations, catching immature size and other irresponsible violations. There are several problems related to lobster resources management, mainly related to the availability of lobster resources and the sustainability of the lobster fishing business. The objectives of the assessment are to (1) evaluate lobster fisheries management based on indicators on EAFM in Lombok Tengah District; (2) identify the main problems in lobster fisheries and gaps in lobster fisheries management that need to be intervened by the government; and (3) provide recommendation of interventions for ISLME activities based on the results of the EAFM assessment and identification of management gaps.
