The findings of a 2008 study on inland fisheries livelihoods in Central Asia, conducted in partnership between Portsmouth University, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), examines current policies and potential livelihood-enhancing interventions.
Inland fisheries livelihoods in Central Asia: policy interventions and opportunities, now available online, looks at strategies that have evolved for those who earn an income from the sector.
Three distinct groupings emerge: the Kazakh "fisher brigades" based on the North Aral Sea, the "community" fishers of Kyrgyz Republic and the pond culturalists of the Republic of Tajikistan.
The FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Technical Paper also identifies the prerequisites for more effective livelihood-supporting policy interventions within the fisheries sphere across the Central Asian republics.
