Title: The 'cerco-flutante' And The Caiçaras From The Northern Coast Of São Paulo, With Emphasis In Fishing At Trindade, Rj [o Cerco Flutuante E Os Caiçaras Do Litoral Norte De São Paulo, Com ênfase à Pesca De Trindade, Rj]
Author: Begossi A.
Abstract: The 'cerco flutuante', a floating trap net, is used by the caiçaras from the southeastern coast of Brazil for artisanal fishing. This technique is part of a set of historical influences that formed the caiçara culture, and it was introduced in Brazil by the Japanese at the beginning of the last century. Fishing with floating nets occurs in Trindade, State of Rio de Janeiro coast, amongst other fishing devices, such as set gillnets, line, ripper jig, and 'bate-bate'. For a period of nine months fish landings were followed in Trindade, at the Praia do Meio and Rancho. The result of 112 fishing trips includes 70 trips (visits) to the cerco, capturing 1973kg of 35 species. The importance of caiçara fishing, which supports the diversity of fish for consumption and for commerce, as well as the participation of caiçaras in local processes of fishery management are important aspects in order to drive conservation processes in that coast.
