Living From the Sea: Culture and Marine Conservation in Fiji explores the intricate web of culture, traditional practices, structure, beliefs and knowledge of local communities in the Fiji Islands and its significance in the management of marine resource as well as island development in general. This book provides a complex and dynamic synthesis of activities and undertakings observed in local communities to highlight the importance of cultural factors in influencing resource management decisions and their effectiveness. In addition, the book outlines the factors that contribute towards sustainable development in rural communities. Drawing from local examples in rural development and the strengthening of the human capacity, Living From the Sea shares ideas, experiences, challenges and outcomes of community-based marine resource management initiatives trialed in Fiji. Consequent changes associated with marine managed areas are highlighted while a way forward that takes advantage of the cultural roles of the islanders and their respective influences is shown.
