Mangroves in the Gulf of California Increase Fishery Yields

The destruction of mangroves has a strong economic impact on local fishing communities and on food production in the region. Mangrove-related fish and crab species account for 32% of the small-scale fisheries landings in the region. The annual economic median value of these fisheries is $37,500 per hectare of mangrove fringe, falling within the higher end of values previously calculated worldwide for all mangrove services together.
