Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
PLOS ONE has published, More than Anecdotes: Fishers’ Ecological Knowledge Can Fill Gaps for Ecosystem Modeling. The authors compared a fishery model made from fisher knowledge with one based on the scientific literature. "The ecosystem attributes produced from the fishers’ knowledge model were consistent with the ecosystem attributes produced by the scientific model, and elaborated using only the scientific data from literature." You may download the full-text using the link above.
