QuestionApproximately how much of each harvest or catch is sold on local or external markets?
Select Options1 Low, 2 Medium, 3 High
ImportanceThe larger the fraction of catches sold on markets the more we would generally expect fishing patterns to reflect market demand and potentially undermine the sustainability of resource use. Values under 1/3 are categorized as low; while values above 2/3 are categorized as high.
