Factors Influencing Artisanal Fisherfolks' Level of Support for Fishery Regulations: An Approach Using Alternative Ordered Logit Models
AbstractThis article examines factors influencing fishers' decision to support fishery regulations in coastal communities in the Philippines. Using the partial proportional odds variant of the ordered logit model, we show that higher education levels, implementation of regulatory ordinances, and the effectiveness of law enforcement significantly affect the likelihood of supporting fishery regulations in coastal communities.
