The project’s aim is to examine the changes in livelihood strategies and patterns of fishing among nomadic  Bajo in eastern Indonesia from 1994 to 2014. This period corresponds with significant fishery policy shifts by Australia in the exploited border regions and continued pressures on resource sustainability in the Bajo’s home waters. The research will draw on longitudinal data from 1994 to reflect on and compare with current (2014) livelihood and fishing practices as Bajo respond to both internal and external shocks to their strategies. These findings will contribute to the international literature in this area and hopefully better informed policy decisions.
