This project seeks to influence public policies relevant to the conservation, protection and sustainable trade of elasmobranchs in Guatemala. We want to establish a Technical Group, which will work with the government to update the National Plan of Action (NPOA) for Chondrichthyes Guatemala. In the long term, they want to help Guatemala comply with other international commitments. This will be possible by continuing their landing monitoring so governmental institutions may have the necessary information to promote sustainable fisheries.
