LEK interview protocol
First aim of the project is development and application of LEK interview protocol in order to gain as much valuable information on present and historical trends in abundance of most important commercially expolited species. Beside this, a portion of the interview will aim at the identification of most notable thermophillic species which experienced expansion in the last couple of decades.
Comparison of data
Second aim of the project is the comparison of data obtained through LEK protocol with the data collected through scientific research. This will allow us to validate and detect possible deficiences, but also advantages of these two different methodologies.
Collection of biological data
Third aim of the project is to collect biological data on the species identified through interviews as indicator species (thermophillic species with most significant range and population expansion).
