  • Description

    Data from interview-based survey of small-scale fishers in Papua New Guinea

  • Other Descriptors
    • Descriptor

      Structured interviews designed to assess fisher knowledge of reef fish aggregation behaviour, to collect information on fishing practices and to score key socioeconomic variables. The study was designed to assess the role of fisher knowledge in conferring vulnerability of fish aggregations to fishing and to quantify factors associated with heterogeneity in knowledge. Small-scale fishers were surveyed in the communities of Ahus island (Manus Province), Wadau and Muluk (Karkar island, Madang Province) in October 2012.
