Conservation is Top of Mind
Representatives of the Guatemalan Sailfish Commission – Niels and Manoel – coordinated a very productive meeting between Dr. Nelson Ehrhardt – Scientific Director from the University of Miami’s School of Marine Sciences and the Guatemalan Pacific Naval Command.
The main objective discussed at this meeting is truly innovative within the realm of Conservation:
Pursue an educational alliance between University of Miami and the Guatemalan Naval Academy that will render:
-An educational platform for the Guatemalan Naval Academy to use and thus become the instructors for all Artisan Fishermen on topics relating to their work and their relationship with the environment and sustainable fishing
– The latest and most updated curricula for the Naval Academy’s cadets
By participating directly on the educational and training programs, the message of Conservation and Sustainable fishing will be embedded in everyone’s mind for the foreseeable future.
