Summary The present work, which was conducted in the Bagamoyo and Rufiji Districts, Coast Region, aimed at contributing towards mitigation and adaptation to impacts of climate change and variability on coastal communities dependent on coastal panaeid shrimp fisheries. Specifically, the study intended to:
(a) identify existing fishing systems and factors influencing panaeid shrimp abundances and yields through collection of meteorological data discharges of the Rufiji, Ruvu and Wami rivers;
(b) establish indigenous knowledge base on adaptation to climate change and variability; and
(c) develop capacity in remote sensing and image processing for assessing coastal productivity.
