Legal Framework Analysis: Fisheries and Marine Protected Areas

Posted: January 01, 2020

In late July 2019, Environmental Law Institute attorneys completed an assessment of Mexico’s legal framework regulating small-scale fisheries management. Sustainability in small-scale fisheries is important for food security, biodiversity conservation, gender engagement and equity, and local and national economic growth. The report underscores the need to ensure participation of fishing communities in fisheries management and enforcement to achieve these objectives. ELI plans to expand the legal research by incorporating information on state and local-level regulations and ongoing and/or proposed policy reforms in Quintana Roo and Yucatan.
