As to ancient how ancient do you mean. many north american indians
who are still organized in the lower states, provinces and alaska have
hired fishery biologists for their fish mangement. Assuming the
current regulations for and by indians are ancient is a bit
i think you wish to ask who knows of 'older' fish managment techniques
exist on the books. and then the question arises as to whether they
are or can still be effective. thank you

Dear FE colleagues,
I know we have, in FE, some colleagues who are in charge of
Indian fisheries in the US.
I would like to know if there are any fishery policies, in the US
or elsewhere, set up _by and for_ the indians. The aim is to
attempt learning their ancient views (ecological philosophy,
etc.) on exploitation of fish resources.
This could be an interesting opportunity to, perhaps, incorporate
ancient ecological knowledge into our reductionistic scientific
Any leads to texts on the net, references and points of view
would be most appreciated.
