In Mexico, a white snook FIP is being carried out in the Reserva de la Biósfera Marismas Nacionales Nayarit (RBMNN) Natural Protected Area. The main objective of this FIP is to make the white snook fishery sustainable. RBMNN is located in the northwest of Nayarit State. It is comprised of a large network of coastal lagoons, mangrove forests, marshes, and deltas that represent between 15% and 20% of the total mangrove ecosystems in the country. The white snook fishery has a high economic value and in 2015, Nayarit was the largest producer in the country with a total of 1,303 tons. Approximately 435 vessels participate in this fishery and the 90% of fishermen use gillnets.
