Stakeholders that only include the direct users of the coastal resources is a limiting conception. The non-recognition of women as direct users because they are not fishers (in the traditional sense) has resulted in their limited access, participation and benefits to coastal resource management projects and similar intervention focused on fisheries.

Equity and the equitable sharing of power among and between government, fishers and other stakeholders in a community are often thorny issues in co-management. These issues are often visible along social and economic divides in a given community, such as gender roles. Those fishers who will receive the costs (and benefits) of management and regulation need to have a voice in decision-making about fisheries management. Equity and social justice is brought about through empowerment and active participation in the planning and implementation of fisheries co-management.

Resource management. Community and economic development/livelihoods. Capacity building. Institutional support/networking/advocacy. Please note that no one component exists in isolation but they are linked and complementary to each other.
