Scallop Fishery Sustainability in Sechura Bay, Perú
Peruvian Calico Scallop (Concha de Abanico) is one of the most important, and unique fisheries in Northern Perú, with domestic use and great demand from European and North American markets. EcoWB is exploring how our volunteers can assist scallop growers and communities in achieving greater sustainability and recognition for their fishery.
Mangrove and Fisheries Restoration in Sinaloa and Nayarit, Mexico
Local fishermen depend on shallow mangrove estuaries for fish and shrimp catches to feed their families and sell for for cash. Unfortunately, the mangroves are threatened and many of the fish are over-harvested. This research-based project will help to rebuild the mangroves and fisheries.
MULUGÉ SUSTAINABLE FISHERIES
Many local fishermen depend on Gulf of California natural fisheries for food and their living in this remote part of central Baja, California. However, fish stocks are dwindling. Information gathered will help local fishermen and government to ensure long-term fisheries sustainability and develop new business opportunities.
Fisheries Improvement Projects
EcoWB is building a program for assisting the Marine Stewardship Council on their Developing World Program. MSC is the leading global fisheries sustainability certification organization. They and other organizations desire technical assistance on Fisheries Improvement Projects that will raise the sustainability of developing countries’ fisheries toward certification.
Kenya Water Hyacinth
In partnership with Kenyan government authorities, the University of Nairobi, U.S.-based business interests, and local community representatives, Ecologists Without Borders has conceived of a plan to mitigate ecological, disease, and economic problems caused by the proliferation of water hyacinth, an invasive, perennial, free floating aquatic plant, in Lake Victoria.
Peru Marine Fisheries Assistance
The coastal waters of Peru are among the most productive in the world. Peruvian marine fish and shellfish resources support important and valuable commercial and artisanal fisheries. With the demand for domestic and international seafood continually rising, there is a strong need for ensuring the sustainability of Peru’s natural fisheries.
