La pêche à pied

Fishing from the shore

History and techniques


G. Deschamps

Edition 2016

Fishing from the shore has always been part of maritime culture but the history of its practices and the evolution of its various techniques have not been widely disseminated. This book aims to remedy that deficit. The author explains how man, down through the ages, has engaged in what used to be a subsistence activity and today is a leisure sport. This journey through time shows the creative genius of man and the countless methods he has devised to exploit available resources.

Statistique et recherches interdisciplinaires

Statistics and interdisciplinary research

Getting involved when questions go unanswered


F. Laloë

Edition 2016

Based on a specific experience relating to an artisanal fishery study in Senegal, the author shows that the role of statistics must sometimes go beyond that for which it was initially intended. When findings clash with reality at the conclusion of a research programme, it could be that there is no clear relationship with the initial question(s) posed. That is when statisticians must get involved.
