Abstract:

The study assessed the welfare value of fisheries in reducing income poverty and economic vulnerability in the Kafue and the Lower Shire floodplains under the hypothesis that inland small-scale floodplain fisheries significantly reduce poverty and vulnerability in fishing households. The welfare value was also analysed in the context of management regimes of the two floodplain fisheries. The relationship between inter-annual fish production, agricultural production and local rainfall was also evaluated.
