The system is based on recent research on fish behavior and involves a literature search of recent writings in the area. We found a consensus of opinions in these writings
and use the consensus as the basis for determining the data base which includes possible fishing conditions and the best methods for the conditions. The data base contains hundreds
of possibilities which the expert system links to automatically. The expert system is a popular technology used for relaying complex information in an area. Doctors
use expert systems to diagnose illnesses, and we apply the expert system concept to fishing.
