Some fishermen communities here in BCS rely completely on shark meat and shark fins to make ends meet. For these people, a proposal to convert to more sustainable methods, such as tourism, is not always welcome or doesn’t always seem profitable. Some fishermen only target shark; specifically silky, hammerheads, and mako. They have limited or knowledge in other areas that could help them change their views and embrace shark conservation.
Nakawe aims to target issues like this and tries to look for solutions that benefit both shark populations and the communities that depend on them.
