Sustainable Fisheries Network Members
To face the challenges present in the Mesoamerican Reef (MAR) region and promote a responsible management and sustainable use of fisheries and marine resources, on November, 2017, the Mesoamerican Reef´s Sustainable Fisheries Network was created.
This network is integrated by fishery cooperatives, civil associations, academia, government agencies and, from the four countries of the MAR; members that aim to support the sustainability of the fisheries.
With this network, knowledge and best practices on sustainable fisheries are shared among actors of the four countries of the MAR (Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Honduras). The MAR shares similarities in its biodiversity and marine-coastal ecosystems and the economy of the region is highly dependent on marine resources. The populations that depend on these resources, although very diverse, share cultural roots and economic needs to maintain their financial stability and way of life.
With your support, the network has been able to develop workshops focusing on identifying key actors that support sustainable fisheries, projects developed in the region and promoting strategies that will help the network achieve its goal successfully.
All of this activities have been possible because you believe in our work, and as us, you also want to help the region achieve the sustainability of its resources. We´ll keep you posted on how this network moves forward.
Thank you and may this Holiday Season be filled with joy and laughter.
The MAR Fund Team.
