  1. 1A total of 288 snappers were collected in 142 days, and 86 fishermen were interviewed in the five fisheries. 2 A second trip to Bahia was not initially planned. However, data from fishers on spawning periods collected in our first visit to Bahia made us planning for another trip, in order to double check on the gonad maturation of species. This second trip occurred in October 2008.
