Fishes, fishing and ways of living in the middle Rio Negro.


Tamanho: 1.12 MB  |  Formato: PDF

The third volume of the Fishing in the Rio Negro series seeks to value the way of life of indigenous and riverbank peoples of the middle Rio Negro. This is a remote region of huge geographical extent, with a rich socio-environmental heritage but with low national economic and political visibility. With a social dynamic of its own, an ancient history of occupation, and colonization projects dating from the XVII century, the Rio Negro has a huge social and cultural diversity. Traditional knowledge associated with fishing techniques, gear and socio-environmental relations are part of this heritage, which constitutes the Rio Negro’s way of life and are therefore key for the preservation and reproduction of the region’s socio-biodiversity.
