During the following months, crab traps were built with assistance from the crab fishermen and Ngarameliwei group. Forest plots were set within the inner middle and outer zones of these four conservation areas. The water quality and forest structure and number of crab fishers or crabbing effort varied between sites. Interviews with the crab fishermen in the field to determine the best locations to set traps and to document temporal harvest peaks and reproductive periods. This information was used to determine placement of traps and when possible optimal times to set and check traps"--Overview.
