Abstract
If the government programs and policies for helping fishermen attain greater productivity are to be successful, it will be necessary to understand the behavior of the fishermen. To further this objective, the fishing industry in the four main fishing villages in southwest Puerto Rico was studied. Specific objectives of the study included: (1) discovering the differences in such factors as level of living, fertility, education, religious affiliation, and age between fishermen and people in other occupations and between the more urbanized areas and the rural areas; (2) determining the relationship between such variables as education and fertility, and occupation and fertility; and (3) evaluating the aspirations and job satisfaction of fishermen. Data for the study were gathered through personal interviews, observations, and official information. Data on population fertility; religion; education; age distribution and migration; and job satisfaction, aspirations, and occupational mobility are presented. (Author Modified Abstract)
