MetadataShow full item record
The Fishing Gear and Methods in Southeast Asia: II, has first been published for more than a decade (i.e. 1989). The work described in the report was the result of a team effort by members of the SEAFDEC Training Department. The team had made three survey trips to cover as many fishing villages as possible throughout Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia. What appear was therefore a compilation of data, information and schematic drawings of existing fishing gear and methods. The boundaries of the study area shown on the charts that appear in the report have been drawn according to technical requirements. It contained descriptions of 247 marine fishing gears employed in the marine fisheries of Malaysia. This revised version updates the data and information that were recorded for more than a decade ago which are almost out of date. However, the schematic drawing of fishing gear and methods from the original volume are maintained, with a minimum amendment and also with additional of 9 new designs, make it comprises of 256 descriptions of the fishing gears.
