Peer Review[edit]

Great job adding to what was originally a very short article. I thought the example of the Newfoundland cod fishery was very fitting, and I also appreciated the examples from specific cultures. Most of the edits I made were simply minor grammatical and sentence structure changes. You say in the introduction that ethnoichthyology is a science; however, I would argue that ichthyology is a science, whereas ethnoichthyology draws on elements of anthropology, economics and even art as well as science. Secondly, in the section on conservation you describe ethnoichthyology as a tool. I'm not sure "tool" is the right word to use when describing a discipline--perhaps something along the lines of "perspective to adopt" might fit better. Lastly, if you were open to adding more new content, a section on uses of fish other than as a food (i.e. medicine, artwork, folklore) might be interesting and link this subject even more to anthropology because of its direct connection to culture. Overall, I think you've made significant improvements to this article. Sorry I didn't get this review to you earlier--you were very punctual with implementing your edits. Let me know if you would like me to clarify anything. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ajmacdonald3 (talkcontribs) 01:37, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Peer Review[edit]

You did a great job expanding the article. Your research was evidently extensive and varied. The review by Ajmacdonald3 was very thorough, and I agree with all of the points made by that student. I made a few changes to wording, spelling, and grammar. Great job linking this article to other articles. It might be good to explain further the Cha Cha fishing practice of seining. The way it is written gives the impression that the fishing practice is uncommon or unimportant because it is difficult to catch fish. So it is a bit confusing when the next sentence explains that seining isn't a popular practice because by using it, fishermen catch too many fish to sell or eat! Overall, very well done!
