The Economics of Fishing and the Developing World:
A Malaysian Case Study
GC Munro & Chee Kim Loy
This work was inspired by the Third United Nations Law of the Sea Conference when it was realised there were very few studies by social scientists of fisheries in the developing world. The Universiti Sains Malaysia decided to examine the state of the fishing industry in Penang and neighbouring Kedah via a multidiscipinary approach. This book was to be followed by two other volumes looking at politics and public policy towards the industry and the social characteristics of fishermen respectively. 139 pages including charts, figures and tables, a fold out map, four appendices, a glossary and a bibliography. The contents include -
- I - Introduction,
- II - The Economics of Fishing: The Conventional View and Recent Developments,
- III - The Coastal Fishing Industries of Penang and Kedah: A Profile,
- IV - The Trawlers,
- V - The Inshore Sectors &
- VI - The Distribution System: A Commentary.
