Describe the problem
Active surveillance and enforcement of no-take marine conservation area is carried out by teams comprised of community members of the two villages who have ownership and fishing rights in the designated Nimpal Channel Marine Conservation Area (MCA). Violations of community adopted guidelines for the conservation area are dealt with by the communities through its authority under customary and traditional tenure ship of land and near-shore marine, which is duly recognized by the State's Constitution. This is community enforcing its own mandates upon its own members and any potential poachers who attempt to harvest within the community conservation zone.
