Abstract

The climate of a location is determined by the performance of meteorological parameters, which exert their influence when tend to undermine the society and influence the way of life. The impact of climate depends not only on bad weather, but also from the same mans ability to react, organize or adapt, and the perception of the climate is a cognitive process that guides the behavior of people faced with decisions that involve potential risks. The case that I have examined, the classification of winds developed by the fishermen of the village of Kuzaki (Japan), is an example of acceptance and living with natural hazards, which suggests an almost symbiotic relationship between fishermen and weather hazards. Through the analysis of the classification of the winds, I try to identify key elements of the relationship between the perception of risk in coastal fisheries, the consequences that may arise under the local meteorological dynamics, and knowledge of the climate that allows to adapt activities to the environmental characteristics and conditions of risk that may arise.
