- Mathew, Sebastian. 2001. Small-scale Fisheries Perspective on an Ecosystem-based Approach to Fisheries Management
The paper suggests that there is an urgent need for the State to take up fisheries management measures for greater equity and sustainability through consultative mechanisms. In this context, greater recognition should be given to small-scale rather than large-scale fisheries. The emphasis has to change: away from increasing fish production, toward conservation and management goals.
- Mathew, Sebastian. 2001. Shell Out: The Shrimp-Turtle Dispute at the WTO; Conserving Sea Turtles and Protecting Livelihoods (Draft, Not to be Quoted)
The paper suggests that a single-species agenda for protection and conservation—in this instance, of sea turtles—is bound to be counterproductive if adopted in isolation especially in a multi-species, multi-cultural context with numerous fishing gear and fishing methods, and with varying dependence on the fishery for life and livelihood.
