EVALUATION OF THE SUSTAINABLE POTENTIAL OF LIVING RESOURCES IN EXCLUSIVE ECONOMIC ZONE

OBJECTIVE

navio

The main objective of this program is to produce an inventory of the sustainability potential for catching living resources in our Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), which was extended from the outer limit of the territorial sea ( 12 miles wide, up to 200 nautical miles from the coast), covering a length of about 3.5 million square kilometers. REVIZEE resulted from the commitment made by Brazil when, in 1988, it ratified the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (in effect since November 16, 1994) and incorporate its concepts into our domestic law, through by the 1988 Constitution and Law No 8617, of January 4, 1993. The program is essential for our country to ensure its sovereignty, for the purpose of exploring and exploiting, conserving and managing living resources in our EEZ, within the perspective of the sustainable use of marine resources.

For our fishing industry, REVIZEE provided information required by the sector, of great socio-economic relevance. This relevance was characterized by the generation of about 800,000 jobs; in effect, approximately 4 million people depend, directly or indirectly, from the sector; it is also a major source of protein for human consumption. As such, it required adequate planning and management, based on sound and updated scientific and technical data, to support proper conservation and management.

GOALS

fundo do mar

- It compiled an inventory of living resources in the EEZ, as well as the environmental characteristics of their occurrence;

- It determined their biomasses; and

- It established the sustainable catching points.

STEPS AND DEPLOYMENT

navio

- Determination of the distribution, seasonality, abundance and sustainability potential of living resources in the EEZ, using techniques for the prospecting and exploration and assessment of fishing stocks;

- Obtaining a climatological frame of reference and an oceanographic and comprehensive view for the fields of physics, chemistry, geology and biology, to contribute to the understanding of the dynamics of living resources in the EEZ; and

- Analysis of the sustainability potentials and exploitation prospects, based on the integration of information about abundance and environmental characteristics.

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEES

REVIZEE devised the core of the V Sectorial Plan for the Resources of the Sea (V PSRM), in effect from 1999 to 2003. The Program, under the CIRM, was under the care of an Executive Committee, coordinated by the Ministry of the Environment (MMA), with participation by the Navy of Brazil (MB), Ministry of External Relations (MRE). the Ministry of Education (MEC), Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MCTI), Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply (MAPA), National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq), Secretariat of the Inter-ministerial Commission for the Resources of the Sea (SECIRM), Bahia Pesca S/A and the Brazilian Institute of the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources (IBAMA), which is the Operational Coordinator.
