Manejo Responsável para Pesca de Camarão

The Instituto Maramar carries out socio-environmental projects in partnership with local fisheries to promote the conservation of marine and coastal areas along the Santos, São Paulo coastline. In 2006, the support received for the Casa Perequê project in Guarujá enabled fishermen, shrimpers, and everyone involved throughout the production chain, to work together for an ecologically and socially sustainable solution.

The project also enabled improvements to the physical infrastructure of the fisheries and increased their production potential. In 2007, the “Responsible Management of Sete Barbas Shrimp” project expanded the activities already undertaken through Casa Perequê. Training workshops to promote the responsible management of marine resources were extended to four communities, and reached another 200 fishermen.
