Training and awareness programs should be initiated and postlarvae survival rates can be substantially improved by promoting better practices in gear operation, fry sorting, holding and marketing.
- A reduction in fishing pressure could improve the viability for those that stay engaged in fishing for prawn postlarvae. Thus, today fishers indicate that due to the reduced catches of postlarvae, this activity does not any longer improve their income to such a level that they feel their livelihoods to be resilient to the vulnerability context they encounter, the researchers state.
