Title: Management and Socio-Economic Aspects for Jebel Aulia Downstream Fishery Khartoum State
Author: Matere, Anthony Julu Michael
Abstract: The research was carried out to investigate some management and socio-economic conditions affecting fish producers of Jebel Aulia reservoir downstream fishery. The methodologies applied include questionnaires, field trips to the study site as well as individual and group discussions with members of the fishing community. The results showed that, some of the management policies impact negatively on fish production thus affecting the socio-economic status of fish producers drastically. This is practically observed in the dominance of unconventional capture methods, application of illegal gear material (monofilament nylon threads) and mesh size (2x2 cm), lack of modern post harvest infrastructure, absence of institutions and producer organizations, insufficient extension services, no clearly defined marketing systems etc…. The study recommends that, policy makers and fisheries officials (Research as well as Administration) should extend their tasks from the management of natural resources to that of fishers through their incorporation in decision making processes to enhance rational governance of the fisheries sector. Moreover, the research recommends the establishment of network of fish producers’ associations and groups to be assisted by the development agencies as well as the private sector, institution of production and market group. Availability of credit cooperatives, provision of reliable and timely information on the fisheries status and trends, extension packages to impart scientific advices for sustainable development of the fishery and the availability and accessibility of hygienic fish markets to consumers in populous areas to ensure relatively affordable prices and continuous fish supply all the year round (food security) are recommended as a key point for the development of the fishery
