Education and Knowledge Systems

Learning and traditional ecological knowledge
How people communicate their feelings, experiences and shared knowledge about the marine environment is important for understanding the cultural significance of those ecosystems. Fishers may have a particular ecological knowledge of marine ecosystems through their daily engagement with the sea. The way that this watery world is significant in the social practices of both fishers and non-fishers in coastal communities is important. Perhaps fishing has a role to play in education and information provision through making visible the often unseen undersea world of marine organisms and showing where our fish and seafood comes from.
