Title: Fishing And Niche Dimension For Food Consumption Of Caiçaras From Ponta Do Almada (brazil)
Author: Hanazaki N.
Begossi A.
Abstract: In this research we analyze the diet of the caiçara population in Ponta do Almada (Brazil), regarding the items of animal origin such as fish, and its connection to local fishing activities. Observations of fishing activities and diet were made every two months during 1995-6. Diet data were collected from a total of 436 meals of 12 randomly selected families and 89 fishing trips. Fish was the main animal protein consumed, but there was no direct relationship between fish catches and fish consumed per month, even though some of the most frequently caught species were observed in the diet. Niche breadth for animal protein consumed was larger for families of full time fishermen. The reduction of traditional occupations (such as fisheries and small-scale agriculture) and the increasing dependence on urban centers and on activities related to tourism may result in changes in the dietary patterns of caiçaras.
