Description
Descriptions
  1. Type: brief

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

  2. Type: full

    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.

  3. Type: note

    This dataset consists of a spreadsheet in MS Excel (.xlsx) and Open Document formats (.ods)
