Abstract: "This paper builds and provides and update of previously published work (Bailey 1986, 1988). The purposes of this paper are to: (1) explain why Indonesia imposed its trawler ban in the first place; (2) examine the impacts of this ban during the past 12 years; and (3) assess the implications of this action for future fisheries management strategies in Indonesia and other tropical developing nations in Southeast Asia and beyond. The paper begins by tracing the origins and growth of Indonesia's trawler fleet. This is followed first by a discussion of factors which led to the trawler ban and then by an examination of the impacts of this action. The paper concludes with an analysis that puts Indonesia's trawler ban into the large context of fishery management needs in Indonesia and the region as a whole."
