The study “Value chain analysis of the main artisanal fisheries in the Galera-San Francisco Marine Reserve” accurately explains and illustrates the commercial processes for the most valuable species of the artisanal fishing sector within the Marine Reserve. These species include Pacific bearded brotula (Brotula clarkae), Mahi mahi (Coryphaena hippurus), Bigeye Tuna (Thunnus obesus), Striped bonito (Sarda orientalis) and Green spiny lobster (Panulirus gracilis).Each of these species is included in the study due to their impact on overall economic activity in the communities, as well as feasibility of research. The study also provides valuable information about potential changes in the chain to acquire greater efficiency and growth in the appropriate areas, each directed towards principles of responsible and sustainable development in the region. This is the first detailed study of its kind within the region.
