This study sought documentation from fishermen of fish habitats and the effects of fishing gear. The report summarizes changes to habitat observed by fishermen over time, and evaluates the effectiveness of different approaches to identify fishermen's knowledge and to document their observations. This and future similar studies will provide opportunities to bring fishermen's knowledge to the forefront as essential fish habitat management plans are being developed.
