A further note to “fishing gear for prawn and shrimp used in the Philippines today”
MetadataShow full item record
Motoh (1980) reported 9 and 13 kinds of shrimping gear for the fry and the adult respectively, of which most of them are indigenously used today in the Philippines. Howerver, druing the continued ecological survey of penaeids in the country conducted by him and his staff, six kinds of shrimping gear or devices were additionally found by them, which have been used traditionally in the country. The reasons that the present author intends to introduce the gear or devices are as follwos: 1) To record theses unque devices from the nature conservation point of view, which were invented by local people through their long experiences, though devices been forgotten due to their poor catching effectiveness, and 2) To recommend the continuous use of these devices by local people, which impose much less construction technique and energy on the users compared to modern mechanized catching tools.
