NOVEL FISHING. PROGRESSIVE LIVELIHOOD.
We are a team of experts on fishing technologies. Our work intends to support the Mexican government in the design of novel fishing techniques that allow small-scale fishermen to pursue a progressive livelihood without compromising the existence of the totoaba croaker or vaquita porpoise.
ALTERNATIVE GEAR TO GILLNETS IN THE UPPER GULF OF CALIFORNIA
This report was prepared by the Expert Committee on Fishing Technologies (ECOFT), formed in 2016 to advise the Mexican government on developing alternative fishing gear.
The report was made possible from the generous contributions of The Marisla Foundation, The David and Lucile Packard Foundation, World Wildlife Fund – Netherlands, World Wildlife Fund – Switzerland and the United States Marine Mammal Commission. The contents within would not be possible without the collaboration from the Instituto Nacional de Pesca (INAPESCA), Pronatura Noroeste and Pesca ABC.
