Mangrove Reforestation in Anjiabe Ambilobe

The mangrove, often referred to as the “nursery of the ocean,” is a vital ecosystem for many marine species, including shrimp and lobsters. These coastal wetlands serve as a refuge for the reproduction and growth of juveniles, ensuring the sustainability of marine populations.

Unfortunately, mangrove deforestation has had devastating effects on these fragile ecosystems, threatening biodiversity and the livelihoods of local communities dependent on fishing.

That’s why, on October 27th, in collaboration with the Ministry of Fisheries and the Blue Economy, we launched a mangrove reforestation campaign in Anjiabe Ambilobe, Northern Madagascar. The targeted area, selected in cooperation with the local community, covers 18 hectares.

Each year, the companies Réfrigépêche Ouest and Réfrigépêche Est carry out mangrove reforestation on several hectares in different locations, according to the fishing zones of their vessels.

The main objective is to restore and preserve the essential ecosystems needed for the reproduction of marine species, thus contributing to ensuring the sustainability of marine resources.
