An unpublished study published by Oceana reveals the serious situation of the red lobster (Panulirus argus) in Brazil, a species that generates more than 50 million dollars in annual exports. According to the report, the stock of the species is below 18% of its maximum capacity, which could compromise the future of fishing if the current fishing pattern is not modified.
"If we continue at this rate, the lobster fishery will soon collapse," warned Oceana director general, oceanologist Ademilson Zamboni. Fishing depends on young individuals, since the fishing pressure is so great that they cannot grow.
