From Baird Maritime:
A.k.a. how to confuse ‘em with science. This book, written by a vastly experienced professor of horticulture is intended to provide biology students with the ability to “demystify statistical formulae”.
Given the ability of government marine biologists to use jargon and mathematics to confuse and bamboozle their victims in the fishing industry, this is a very useful book. It provides those victims with a key with which to unlock their tormentors’ arcane obfuscation.
This widespread intellectual bullying seems to be the norm at the interface between managed and managers in the case of the fishing industry. This book provides a useful weapon against it.
