Small ring net fishing
The aim of this manual is to impart to the subsistence fishermen the basic principles of designing, constructing and operating the small ring net. The information has been gathered through contacts with fishermen and operators of this fishing gear in the hope that subsistence fishermen may be able to improve their status by becoming medium-scale fishermen.
The Small Ring Net Fishing manual has been prepared for SAFIS by Mr. Danilo O. Maputol of the Philippines. Mr. Maputol is a fishery extension specialist stationed at the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) Provisional Fishery Office located at Cagayan de Oro City.
