Descrição

Abordagem integrada para melhorar a qualidade de vida nas comunidades piscatórias do estuário dos "Bons Sinais" (Moçambique)

The Bons Sinais (BS) estuary sustains an important artisanal fishery (targeting fish and invertebrates) providing an important source of animal protein, employment, revenue etc. to many fishing villages. However, none of the exploited resources have effective management plans putting most species at risk of overexploitation and affecting the livelihood of fishing villages. This collaborative project aims to enhance the knowledge in biology, ecology and socio-economic aspects of fisheries in BS estuary: an integrative approach for improved fisheries management and live quality is development (quality of life assessment).  

The project incorporates the following main objectives: Environmental description of the area, inventory of fishery diversity, the study of key-species’ biology, population dynamics and recruitment of species with socio-economic interest, fishing pressure risk assessment (characterization of fishing gear and fishing effort), socioeconomic importance of the fishing activity, capacity building and definition of management strategies for regional subsistence/artisanal fisheries.
