In response to the recent decline in fish stocks in Rodrigues 4 marine reserves will be created in the northern lagoon, of which the first at Rivière Banane will be proclaimed in late 2006/early 2007. There is an urgent need for socio-economic monitoring to be carried out in combination with the biological monitoring which has been on-going since 2002. The main objectives of this study therefore were to formalise and add to existing knowledge on fisheries and fishers attitudes and to establish baselines for future monitoring and evaluation. Surveys were undertaken at Rivière Banane during May – July 2006 using a combination of Household Surveys, Key Informant and Focus Group Interviews.
