Abstract: "This paper draws on a case study of one rapidly-developing fishing community in an attempt to explain this apparent lack of strong local resource management institutions for fisheries in Java. The increasing presence of central government authority, coupled with a Javanese cultural tradition that does not include a strong tradition of sea fishing, may have contributed to the erosion of existing local institutions for managing access to fishery resources and prevented the development of strong local management institutions as .an outcome of fisheries conflicts. It is argued that perhaps because of local people's inability to restrict access to the bay's fishery resources, new, informal local institutions, based on Javanese cultural traditions, have evolved for redistributing the fish catch once it reaches shore."
