I am preparing a paper on the impacts of artisanal fishing on coral reefs in
My data indicate that fishing effort is concentrated on the reef flat or in
shallow water (up to 4 m). However, I can find very little evidence in the
primary or grey literature to support a preference (or otherwise) in
artisanal fishermen for fishing at these depths (apart from Larouche 95).
Would anyone who knows of any reports or papers with evidence on this topic
please let me know?
I appreciate your help.
