Cabo Verde

The status of sharks and rays in the Eastern Atlantic is poorly known, as is their connectivity with the Western Atlantic. Working with traditional fishers and institutional partners, we are conducting the first fisheries-dependent and independent assessments and long-term monitoring of sharks and rays in Cabo Verde, including critical nursery areas. This work gives us a platform to focus on the spatial ecology of large, threatened and highly migratory elasmobranchs, data deficient species and to conduct broad outreach and education to create alliances between these species and local communities.

Accomplishments

  • Completed first fisheries independent baseline for sharks, rays and turtles throughout Cabo Verde’s Eastern Islands
  • Completed fisher’s historical surveys
  • Trained 9 traditional fishers in fisheries independent monitoring techniques for sharks and rays
  • Engaged 460 students in the Menin de Mar educational program
