.. and in the artisanal fishery in Diani, Kenya, which is also strongly
overfished, damselfish make up 0.41% (by number, or a total of 236 fish)
of the overall catch recorded (1998-2001). 91% of these are caught in
traditional basket-traps, 7% by spearguns, 1% by handlines. The
proportion would be considerably less by weight ... as in Jamaica,
perhaps more would be caught by spearguns, but they are undersampled
here as well.
