Since 2012 we collaborate with scientists to estimate vaquita population.
We capture fish with hook and sacrifice it with ike-jime technique giving fish a better quality and shelf life.
Mini-tawl for shrimp
In 2022 we tested a 35 feet long mini-trawl net for shrimp. With this new model the average catches were 176.4 kilogram per fishing trip.
Since 2016, we have collaborated with the Mexican government and other organizations on the localization and recovery of derelict fishing gear. In 2023, we continued with this effort.
Pesca ABC is a grassroots organization based in San Felipe, Baja California (México). This organization is formed by local fishers who are committed with their community and the sustainability of the region.
All members or the directive council are fishers.
Pesca ABC during Mexico Senate's dialogue table for ghost net legislation
It is an honor to share with you that Pesca ABC participated in the Mexico Senate's dialogue table for ghost nets legislation, which took place on February 21.
We thank the Senate Environment Commission, Global Ghost Gear Initiative, ICCF-Mexico, and Ocean Conservancy for including us in this critical dialogue for the country's fishing communities.
We believe that the best solution to the human-wildlife conflicts in the region is the development of sustainable fisheries that contribute to human welfare and the conservation of natural resources.
