ExplanationBased on the continuous engagement of this group in the MPA planing process I imagine it is high.
Past CollaborationHigh (3)
ExplanationThey needed to collaborate and cooperate since they formed cooperatives.
Personal CommunicationMore than once a year (5)
ExplanationMost likely they depend on interpersonal communication for a variety of reasons: fishing spots, safety, regulation. Also some of them should live in close proximity or fish from same ports/areas. However, artisanal fishers come from 3 different islands and I am not sure what is the level of communication among those subgroups.
