SOLUTIONS FOR FISHING RECOVERY ARE DISCUSSED AT THE EVENT WITH EXPERTS
The main challenges related to the resumption of economic and productive activities related to impacted fisheries, aquaculture and sand mining were discussed during the first Technical Panel on Aquaculture and Fisheries held on January 19 in Belo Horizonte (MG) ). Organized by the Renova Foundation, the event brought together academic representatives, technical institutions and regulatory and inspection bodies to reflect, in a cooperative way, possible alternatives for the restoration of these activities in the area of the Rio Doce basin.
“We value dialogue and we do not believe in prefabricated responses. The meeting is a time of learning that allows the different actors involved to work together to find solutions to this very complex problem, “says Estaneslau Klein, who operates the Resumption of Aquaculture and Fisheries Activities program.

During the event, data and diagnoses were presented in previous studies on the subject, experiences implemented and results, and the scenario of post-rupture of the Fundão dam was analyzed. With a multidisciplinary approach, the experts discussed the social, economic and environmental challenges and opportunities that contribute to the work developed by Renova.
These discussions will contribute to the development of the scope of the program. A key challenge is to integrate environmental remediation work, which will create conditions for river restoration activities, with the encouragement of aquaculture and sustainable fish production in the region, respecting and securing lifestyles, interests And professional and productive vocations of the people directly affected.
The next step is the commitment of the affected fishermen, aquaculturists, sand extractors and choosing a good baitcaster for their participation in the definition of the actions to be carried out.
Representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply, the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development, Sebrae-MG, Federal University of Minas Gerais, Epamig, Emater, among others, attended the discussion. Next month, a new edition of the panel will be held in Espírito Santo
