This study provides key insights for the development of incentive-based conservation schemes for hilsa in Myanmar’s Ayeyarwady Delta. The results of a choice experiment suggest on average a willingness to participate in such conservation schemes. Some potential management options for conservation schemes such as additional closed fishing periods and creation of new sanctuaries are more widely accepted than restrictions in net use. We recommend further studies to refine management options and identify appropriate compensation mechanisms that take into account improved ecological knowledge and carefully consider income dependencies and gender disparities along the supply chain.
