Traditional knowledge Use for the
Sustainable Management of Marine and
Fishing Resources


by
CoopeSoliDar


The use of traditional knowledge can be a powerful conservation tool, providing community support for conservation plans and enabling the inclusion of customary ecological management practices in their design. This study documents three experiences in Central America where traditional knowledge has been used to improve marine spatial planning and frame a new policy oriented towardshuman rights approaches to fi sheries and has given better tools for the governance of communitymanaged protected areas.


With the support of the International Collective in Support of Fishworkers (ICSF), CoopeSoliDar R.L. selected the case studies (two in Costa Rica, one in Honduras) based on processes that allowed observation of the contribution of traditional knowledge in the generation of information for coming up with a policy for the sustainable use of fi shing resources and management practices geared towards marine conservation.
