dc.description.abstract "Hundreds of small-scale fishermen in Mexico and elsewhere already benefit from certification of their fisheries under the MSCs programme. For example, the MSC label is helping community-based spiny lobster fishermen from Puerto Abreojos on Mexicos Baja Peninsula open new markets and get more money for their product. Their experience has encouraged other small-scale fishermen on Mexicos Yucatán Peninsula likewise to seek certification of their lobster fishery in the Sian Kaan and Banco Chinchorro Biosphere Reserves. More than 70 per cent of the spiny lobster caught in Mexican fisheries is exported to the United States and Europe, where ecolabels are increasingly sought by corporate seafood buyers, chefs and consumers alike." en_US
