Abstract

This research on the importance of fishing communities’ participation in policy formulation and implementation was conducted in Temeke district, Dar- Es – Salaam region, Tanzania. The purpose of the study was to determine the level to which the studied population participated in Policy formulation and implementation. The study used quantitative method for data collection and data analysis supported by Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS). The study covered 75 fishers within 5 different BMUs and 10 Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries development Officers.Results showed that a significant number of respondents (62.7%) had not been involved in policy formulation, while 80% of the sample said they implement fishing policies. However, 50% of the ministry officials confirmed the implementation of the policies by BMUs members, which means that the level of follow up, monitoring and support is at very low level. Furthermore, the implication of such results is demonstrated in poor implementation of policies and illegal fishing practices. Due to diverging responses from both community members and Ministry’s officials, one can conclude that there is not enough coordination of activities between the two stakeholders. The reality on the field revealed that there is much to do by the ministry of Livestock and fisheries Development to make more effective the participation of BMUs members in policy formulation and implementation. Therefore, it is recommended that communities’ participation in policy formulation be a priority and training organized at BMUs.
