Fisher knowledge is increasingly seen as an important source of information for the management of fisheries and sought by both academics and managers. With reference to interviews with Norwegian fishers I will discuss problematic ethical and methodological aspects of such documentation. Fisher knowledge is embedded in a social and cultural context and transfer of knowledge is relational. Fisher knowledge is a professional asset, and contains information that is often known only to a small group of local people.

This article compares male and female anglers' motivations and ethics for recreational fishing. Results are derived from a 2000–2001 survey of Minnesota anglers. Men reported higher involvement in fishing than women did. Women rated motivations related to catching fish for food higher than men did. Men rated developing skills and catching trophy fish higher than women did. Men agreed more with ethics related to catch-and-release fishing. Opinions about regulations and actual fishing behavior reflected each gender's motivations and ethics.
