Quantifying the overlooked socio-economic contribution of small-scale fisheries in Sabah, Malaysia

Quantifying the overlooked socio-economic contribution of small-scale fisheries in Sabah, Malaysia

Fisheries Research 110(3): 0-458

Our study objective is to quantify the present and historical contribution of small-scale fisheries to national economies. We focus on the small-scale fishing sector in Sabah, Malaysia, and use a previously reconstructed time series of Sabah's small-scale catches as the basis for estimating the economic value of these fisheries. Our findings suggest that since the early 199s, small-scale fish catches in Sabah may have been undervalued by up to 225%. Presently, small-scale fisheries may be supporting up to an additional 3.5% of Sabah's population. Further, accounting for the economic impact of unaccounted small-scale fisheries value could have potentially tripled the.
