Guía para la evaluación y mitigación de capturas incidentales de tortugas marinas y otros depredadores superiores en pesquerías artesanales

En los últimos 5 años, ProDelphinus ha probado la eficacia de diversos dispositivos tecnológicos de mitigación o reducción de capturas incidentales (e.i., luces LED y pingers) en pesquerías artesanales de redes, mostrando resultados positivos, especialmente en el caso de las tortugas marinas. En base a esta experiencia, ProDelphinus busca compartir los conocimientos adquiridos en la materia, es decir, aciertos y desaciertos experimentados en el tiempo, a través de la generación de un documento técnico. Para ello, se elaboró una guía de campo la cual aborda los principales temas de discusión entre estudiantes y egresados de carreras afines a las ciencias marinas y pesqueras que deseen iniciar investigaciones relacionadas a la pesca incidental o bycatch de tortugas marinas u otros depredadores superiores.

Exploring gender inclusion in small-scale fisheries management and development in Melanesia

"Fisheries, like other sectors, is not immune to gender inequality, and women tend to experience the brunt of inequality as undervalued and underrepresented actors in fisheries management and development. A comprehensive understanding of the gender approaches in use, including potential barriers to their implementation, is needed to promote gender equitable outcomes in the small-scale fisheries (SSF) sector."
