Although the theoretical importance of institutional designs for common-pool resource management, including lagoon fishery resources, is highlighted in many academic and research works, an actual and applicable framework in which such theory can be seen and tested in practice has not yet been available. Such a practical framework or guidance would be an innovative tool to help bridge the gap between theory and practice. Small-scale fishers would be able to achieve wise use of lagoon fishery resources sufficiently over time. In all of the case studies discussed, policy makers and practitioners are provided with guidance to enable the best conditions for integrated lagoon fisheries management and related sustainable livelihoods, with particular emphasis on issues of power, institutions, worldviews, and values among relevant stakeholders.The goal of this book is to create a framework for sound lagoon fisheries management, aiming to ensure sustainable livelihoods in fishing communities of lagoon areas.
