Guilherme Dumaresq de Oliveira, Karen Maria da Costa Mattos


In this work, the aim is to demonstrate the growth of the shrimp breeding (Carcinicultura) in Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, as well as studying the environmental impacts generated by the activity in the mangrove ecosystem. Therefore, the importance of such environment will be showed, considering that the activity depends on that environment to subsist. Thus, environmental impacts are generated by the activity in the mangrove ecosystem. In this article, the deforestation generated in the Environmental Conservation Areas (APA, in Portuguese) of mangroves and riparian forest used for constructing tanks for shrimp breeding in Nísia Floresta, Rio Grande do Norte will be analyzed. There is, also, the aim of communicating the existence of the Recovery Plan for the Permanent Preservation Area (PRAPP, in Portuguese), elaborated by Idema (Institute of economic development and environment), the governmental agency responsible for controlling the Environment.
