Artisanal fisherman in Brazil

Mapeamento de Cadeias de Valor da Pesca Artesanal na Costa Amazônica

Na Amazônia, a pesca artesanal é de extrema importância para a subsistência e renda de comunidades tradicionais. Como esta tem um papel central na cultura da região, é de suma importância manter suas contribuições para a conservação dos ecossistemas costeiros e marinhos. Atualmente, diversos gargalos dificultam a estruturação e o desenvolvimento das cadeias de valor (cdvs) da pesca artesanal.

Em 2017, a Conservação Estratégica (CSF-Brasil) concluiu o mapeamento de cdvs da pesca realizadas por comunidades tradicionais na costa da Amazônia brasileira, sendo do: camarão regional no Amapá e Pará; camarão piticaia e branco no Maranhão e do caranguejo-uçá no Pará.

CSF Conservation Strategy Fund California Sonoma Coast abalone fishing

Economic value and impact of recreational abalone fishing

<

p style="text-align: justify;">Abalone is one of the iconic species of the California coast and supports a recreational fishery enjoyed by over 30,000 anglers annually. Because of the abalone’s reproductive processes and lengthy juvenile period, overexploitation and other detrimental factors can have a long-lasting and potentially catastrophic impact on the population. The numbers of abalone on the coast of California have been declining in recent decades and, as a result, only red abalone may be fished recreationally and only north of the San Francisco Bay. In 2011 the red abalone of Sonoma and Marin Counties suffered from a red tide, an algal bloom that decimated the population.

CSF dives into Indonesia!

Potato Game

The outdoor pavilion in the center of Mimpi Resort Menjangan rang with shouts of “Potatoes! Very Cheap!” “$6 a bag! Who will sell for 6?” “Cheapest in town! Come see my potatoes!” “Who wants to make a deal?” And our course on Economic Tools for Marine Conservation in Indonesia was underway. Twenty-two participants from institutions around the country were engaged in their first economic game, experiencing the principles of microeconomics by participating in a market, and working towards an equilibrium price for a sack of potatoes.

There’s no Wikipedia page so you can be forgiven for suspecting that I’m making it up. But Conservation Economics is actually being practiced by a bunch of serious people engaged in one of the most profound challenges of our time - averting massive losses in the diversity of Earth's life forms. So if it doesn’t exist, it’s time we brought it into being. Here goes:

“This course is really helpful for people making decisions or designing projects. By looking at things from an economic perspective, we can take into account the externalities that will likely affect the program.” -Indonesia 2015 Course Graduate
