INTRODUCTION Artificial reefs are man-made submerged structures that are deliberately placed on the seabed (Baine, 2001 ; Svane & Petersen, 2001 ). The establishment of artificial reefs is a measure of global importance for the management of coastal marine ecosystems (Seaman & Jensen

Heterogeneity in species distributions be- tween locations and within locations between roots is often reported. This study quantifi es the diversity and abundance

Spratly reefs are a significant upstream source of genetic diversity for the Coral Triangle, 70 because currents transport larvae originating from there to the central part of the SCS and also the western shore of Luzon and Palawan and further into the Philippines seas. The Spratlys supply larvae and

A History of the Marine Fisheries of Southeast Asia, c. 1850-2000
Author: John G. Butcher
This book is the first on the history of the marine fisheries of Southeast Asia. It takes as its central theme the movement of fisheries into new fishing grounds, particularly the diverse ecosystems that make up the seas of Southeast Asia. This process accelerated between the 1950s and 1970s in what the author calls ‘the great fish race’. Catches soared as the population of the region grew, demand from Japan and North America for shrimps and tuna increased, and fishers adopted more efficient ways of locating, catching, and preserving fish. But the great fish race soon brought about the severe depletion of one fish population after another, while pollution and the destruction of mangroves and coral reefs degraded fish habitats. Today the relentless movement into new fishing grounds has come to an end, for there are no new fishing grounds to exploit.
The frontier of fisheries has closed. The challenge now is to exploit the seas in ways that preserve the diversity of marine life while providing the people of the region with a source of food long into the future.
