About this product
- DescriptionIn developing countries, traditional fishermen are important food contributors, yet techlogical information and development assistance to third-world nations often focuses on agriculture and industrial fishing, without addressing the needs of independent, small-scale fishermen. This book explores techlogical considerations of small-scale, primitive fishing techlogies, and describes invative, relatively inexpensive methods and tools that have already been successfully applied in developing countries. It offers practical information about all aspects of small-scale fishing, including boat design and construction, fishing methods and gear, artificial reef construction and fish aggregating devices, techniques for coastal mariculture, and simple methods for processing and preserving fish once they are caught. Fisheries Techlogies for Developing Countries is illustrated throughout with photographs of the devices and construction methods described in the text.
