Terra curanda is concerned with issues relating environment and sustainability. Fisheries are of high importance for feeding human populations as well as for most of the countries' economies. Current food demand and technology development have become factors of pressure on all commercial species, ecosystems and environment.

The fisheries scenario is much more complex involving social and economical aspects which should not be neglected in order to secure sustainability.

We welcome contributions either on industrial or artisanal fisheries and intend to provide room for communication of academic works regarding any aspect affecting the sustainable fisheries development.
