Where is Andavadoaka?


Southwest madagascar

4th largest reef system in the world

Over 500 species of fish and coral

Livelihood and cultural identity of Vezo people

70,000 people depend on marine resources

Biologically diverse yet least studied marine ecosystems

Southwest Madagascar


Unsustainable fishing

Population growth

Rapid expansion of fisheries and businesses

External fishing pressures

Destructive gear for fishing

Unsustainable fishing


Alternative livelihoods

Community Eco-lodge

Sea Cucumber Farming

Eco-guide Training

Fish Aggregation Devices

Artisanal crafts

Whale-watching platform

Alternative Livelihoods


Protected areas

Andavadoaka’s goal

Sustainable use and protection of marine resources:

Poverty reduction

Biodiversity conservation

Protected areas


Our first community run marine no take zone 2004 2005

Our first community-run marine no take zone (2004-2005)

Economic importance of Andavadoaka's octopus fishery


The first reserve

200 ha reef flat surrounding Nosy Fasy island

Closed for 7 months from Nov-2004

Local law ‘Dina’ created to protect NTZ

Guardian hired by fishers to prevent poaching

The first reserve


Initial conclusions and management implications

Short term closures = increase in the size and number of octopus

Increasing revenue for octopus fishers

Increasing reproductive output

Initial conclusions and management implications


Contribution to national policy

CONTRIBUTION TO NATIONAL POLICY

  • Government introduced national NTZ’s for octopus.


Expansion evolution replication

Expansion; evolution; replication

2004: 1 octopus no-take zone, 1 fishery, 1 village, 0.2 sq km

2007: 24 zones: multiple uses, multiple habitats, 23 villages, 800 sq km
