A Robust Métier-Based Approach to Classifying Fishing Practices Within Commercial Fisheries
Frontiers in Marine Science
Developing a typology of heterogeneous fishing practices through the use of métier analysis is a useful step in understanding the dynamics of fishing fleets and enabling effective implementation of management outcomes. We develop a nonhierarchical clustering framework to quantitatively categorize individual fishing events to a particular métier based on corresponding catch composition, gear configuration, and spatial and temporal references. Our clustering framework has several innovations overdoi:10.3389/fmars.2020.552391 fatcat:4msngm3jfjcg7fm5w6dwcsamca
