Description

The Centro de Estudios Marinos (CEM) was established with the aim of developing technical capacities in applied research to support the management of marine biodiversity. Founded in Utila, Islas de la Bahía, as the “Centro de Ecología Marina de Utila”, the Center now works on both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of Honduras. A significant aspect of their work involves the local fishing community promoting sustainable fishing, marine protected areas, and restoration projects.
