[Extract] Small-scale fishers in developing countries depend heavily on near-shore marine fish capture (Pauly 2006, SOFIA 2008). Yet marine fisheries in many developing countries are underregulated and overfished (Agnew et al. 2009, Le Gallic and Cox 2006, Varkey et al. 2009). Global marine capture fish production peaked in the mid-1980s, and one in three marine fisheries are now considered overfished (SOFIA 2008, Worm et al. 2009). The overlapping issues of local livelihoods and fisheries management are particularly apparent in coastal coral reefs.
