Cedepesca - Atenea en el Mar, S. de R.L de C.V

The objective of this FIP is to improve the geoduck fishery performance towards sustainability by February 2024.

This geoduck semi-autonomous diving ‘hookah’ type fishery started in 2004 as a commercial fishery, with 5 fishing permits, and has grown to 194 fishing permits. This fishing resource has become more important, as its demand increases in Asian countries. The FIP aims to strengthen the biological monitoring program and legal and customary framework.

Cedepesca is a non-profit organization founded in 1997 with the specific objective of helping Latin American fisheries achieve sustainability. The main tool we use are Fisheries Improvement Projects. We form a multidisciplinary group of professionals distributed in strategic locations in Latin America and the Caribbean, together with a passion for research.
