In the Bolivian Amazon, thousands of families depend on fish, from urban fishermen to indigenous peoples and peasant communities. Paiche fishing (Arapaima gigas), an introduced species, has become a socioeconomic alternative in recent years, for subsistence purposes for indigenous fishermen.

For sustainable development, Fish for Life II carries out technical and social studies in order to optimize the management practices of the species and replicate them on a larger scale in indigenous communities. It also contributes to the construction of a favorable environment for fisheries governance and improvements in value chains for all actors involved in the Northern Amazon of Bolivia.
