Sustainability in the 21st Century – The Power of Dialogue

- Cabo Delgado

In the Quirimbas National Park, created in Mozambique in 2002, a few no-take areas were implemented in coral reef areas as a way to protect marine biodiversity and help rebuild fish stocks. Many fishers contested the creation of no-take areas, and fisheries management authorities supported them. This document briefly shows what are the threats to coral reefs inside the QNP, what was the criticism of fishers and fisheries management authorities to sanctuaries, what motivated the QNP to change its strategy, and what results fisheries co-management has already produced in the conservation of coral reefs and in the promotion of fisheries.
