Hviding, E. (1991) Traditional institutions and their role in the contemporary coastal resource management in the Pacific Islands. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 14(4), pp. 3-6.
A discussion is presented on the role played by customary marine tenure (CMT) institutions in the regulation of fisheries in the Pacific Ocean Islands. Particular reference is made to the system in operation in Marovo Lagoon, in the Solomon Islands, whereby a number of defined clans control resource use within defined areas of land and sea. It is believed that such systems have considerable capacity for handling and adapting to new circumstances, thereby becoming potentially important tools in the contemporary management of fisheries and of the coastal zone in general.
