Partnership with the Police
A partnership with the local military police was celebrated to intensify policing in the communities, especially in Labino and Pedra do Sal, in exchange for a small reform in the current police station of Ilha Grande and the construction of a guardhouse in Pedra do Sal, which supports local police operations.
There are periods of the year when the fishery is more abundant, attracting fishing vessels from other parts of the Delta coast (from the CEARÁ to MARANHÃO), engaging in shrimp trawling that becomes environmentally predatory and damages artesanal fishing and income of local families.
