Pernambuco is a state that has several rich and productive coastal ecosystems, comprising various benthic and nectonic communities. This paper aims to analyze the potential areas of occurrence of macroalgae and sea turtles off the coast of Ipojuca, Pernambuco (Brazil), aiming to infer possible feeding areas of the species. The traditional knowledge of the region's fishermen will help us to find regions of higher incidence and preference for sea turtles.

How does fishermen - who subsist tradicionaly of natural resources - perceive the environmental disturbances and cope with them? In this study we aim to underestand how socioeconomic factors (such as social involvement, participation in extension project and educational level) can affect the way they perceive the risks to the conservation of the esturay. The research will be carried out in the municipality of Rio Formoso (Pernambuco, Brazil), located in a estuarine zone wich is used by traditional fishermen and fisherwomen.
Mangrove swamps are a transitional environment that is heavily threatened due to its history of degradation and potential threats today. The objective of this research was to analyze the history of mangrove deforestation in Rio Formoso from 1993 to 2017, evaluating deforestation data to estimate and typify the lost area and identify the main deforestation drivers of this estuary.

Marine Protected Areas in Pernambuco: conservation actions in the decision makers' perception, with emphasis on artisanal fishermen
MSc. in Oceanography (2019)
The objective of this research was evaluate the priorities of the conservation actions of the management plans of the APAs, in the perception of the actors of the managing council, and to develop a tool to improve the understanding of these actions by the fishing communities. This study was carried out in the APAs Costa dos Corais and Guadalupe, located in neighboring areas on the south coast of Pernambuco.

Threats to the conservation of coastal ecosystems can affect the quality of life and cultural resilience of artisanal fishing communities due to fish shortages. The objective of this study was to conduct an ethnobiological research with artisanal fishermen of Rio Formoso (PE), as a case study, to characterize the diversity and conservation of the caught fish, the fishing dynamics and the anthropogenic impacts that negatively affect the abundance of fish. caught in the estuary.

Extension Project (2017) - Edital 2017-03 PROExC-PIBExC Temático
No município de Rio Formoso (PE) a comunidade de pescadores artesanais hoje sofre com o declínio do pescado, fonte de renda deles. Uma das principais causas disso é a poluição gerada pelas usinas de cana de açúcar e pelo despejo de esgoto nos rios e mangues que formam o estuário. Frente a isso, o presente projeto fez com que discentes e docentes ecólogos da UFPE trabalhassem diretamente com essa comunidade de pescadores para que, juntos, buscassem soluções ambientais e sociais para o problema.

Monografia em Engenharia de Pesca (2014)
A etnoictiologia é o ramo das ciências que estuda o modo como o conhecimento, o uso e os significados dos peixes ocorrem nas diferentes sociedades humanas. O município de Rio Formoso é conhecido como a cidade dos manguezais e caracteriza-se por possuir uma pesca essencialmente artesanal e estuarina.
O presente trabalho teve como objetivo avaliar o conhecimento etnoictiológico das comunidades tradicionais quilombolas e urbanas, quanto aos recursos pesqueiros existentes no estuário de Rio Formoso, litoral sul de Pernambuco.
