1. Coastal Resources Management
FishCORAL aims to apply the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management to CRM. This means that interactions between and among all aspects of the ecosystem including plants, animals, humans and organisms as well as non-living components are considered in CRM.
The project design adopts the bay-wide approach to CRM. Thus, municipalities involving contiguous coastal bodies need to work together to improve law enforcement and protect, rehabilitate, and sustainably manage the shared coastal resources within the following bays/ gulfs:
Albay Gulf, Asid Gulf, and Ragay Gulf
Leyte Gulf, Matarinao Bay, Silago-Cabalian Bay, and Maqueda Bay
Butuan Bay and Lianga-Hinatuan-Bislig Bays
Sulu Sea and Illana Bay
