Method step description:

  1. species are collected under the guise of each common name, the full extent of the common names used among different fishermen and whether there is consensus among fishermen and managers on what the common and species names are. Owing to the confusion around the identity of the different worms, we don’t know exactly how many species are being used, but estimate that there are at least 10 on the permitted list. We will aim to get 10 - 20 individuals of each. The identifications of samples collected will be supplemented by an on-line survey or poll via https://www.surveymonkey.com/ asking participants to provide the common names for bait worms in photographs posted, the region where they collect their bait and the number of years over which they have been collecting bait. Once all data have been collated, a photographic guide of permitted and prohibited worms will be compiled and made available via http://www.knysnabasinproject.co.za/. The survey and guide will be promoted via the Knysna Basin Project facebook page, local newspapers, the SANCOR and Zoological Society of southern Africa mailing lists and angling associations.
