Spawning aggregations, along with nursery areas, are key habitats for the sustainability of reef fish populations. In that direction, our partners on the ground Amigos de Sian Ka’an have scaled one step up by joining local fishermen to establish No Take Zones that will allow reef fish to reproduce, increase biomass and biodiversity. We already held workshops to increase awareness on three communities in Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve (Punta Allen, Maria Elena and Punta Herrero). A total of 56 fishermen were trained on No Take Zones, and preliminary areas were proposed. Next November, we will be on the field delimitating those areas with GPS, as well as continuing with their training. Therefore, we are looking forward your donations to purchase fuel for field work, and to analyze the status of those habitats.
