Honduras

A moratorium on fishing sharks declared in 2011 has left the country without much data on populations and distributions of sharks and rays (collectively known as elasmobranchs). Working locally with traditional fishers, coastal and indigenous communities, we focus on generating information necessary for management and decision-making through collaborative research and monitoring, capacity building, income diversification, and outreach.

Accomplishments

  • Completed the baseline for large marine wildlife throughout the Bay Islands in 2017
  • Completed sawfish surveys with traditional fishers to assess the status of these critically endangered rays
  • Engaged over 2,340 late primary students and 68 teachers in our activities based marine educational program
  • Held first regional fisher and partner meeting to assess status and actions for marine megafauna and small scale fisheries post baseline survey completion
  • Co-founded and facilitate the National Shark Advisory Committee
