Sustainable marine resource management in Ecuador through control and monitoring groups

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The community of Puerto Cayo–located in the southern part of Ecuador’s Manabi province has exercised strict protective control over the larval phase of coastal marine species for the past 25 years. This way, they have avoided the harvesting of shrimp larvae and other species inadvertently caught in most fishing nets. The result has been a more sustainable fishery and benefits in terms of both environmental health and income generation.

How will this project solve this problem?

Protect natural resource pools by controlling the larval phase of coastal marine resources and avoiding the harvesting of shrimp larvae and other species; Organization of control and monitoring groups

Potential Long Term Impact

Shrimp harvesting by this project generates a steady income for the fishing community of Puerto Cayo. Further investments in this would improve living standards and sustain local marine habitat for future generations.
