Abstract or Summary
  • Remote regions in developing countries have often not shared in the increase in income and quality of life associated with economic growth in the industrial and service sectors. This is particularly true in countries with a rapidly developing economy and middle class, such as Brazil. Remote regions remained trapped in extractive activities of past generations, where income potential is very limited due to the economic power of intermediaries, the cost of getting products to the market, and the lack of value added in the remote region. In many remote regions, sport fishing opportunities are plentiful and since the expenditure will be based in the region, many of the problems associated with extractive output could be avoided. This paper examines the potential of sport fishing as a sustainable development path In remote regions, with an example from Barcelos, Amazonas, Brazil. The first part of the paper examines alternative income possibilities, and shows why community-based sport fishing has the potential to generate more income and other beneficial improvements in quality of life. The second part of the paper discusses the investments in facilities and human capacity that need to take place in order for community-based sport fishing to be successful. The third part of the paper discusses a bio-socioeconomic model for assessing the impact of sport fishing on community quality of life and environmental quality. The paper concludes by examining our initial efforts and discussing steps for the future.
