Pescando com Redes 3G project was created in 2010 to promote sustainable social and economic development in fishing communities in the city of Santa Cruz Cabrália, in southern Bahia, through digital and social inclusion. Fishing is one of the main economic activities in the region and provides a living for families who have been in the business for years using techniques inherited from their ancestors. Overfishing, coupled with a lack of investment, has resulted in diminishing opportunities, reducing the income of the fishing communities and resulting in the emigration of young people to other cities in search of jobs. Fishing with 3G Nets aims to support the implementation of new economic activities through the use of 3G connected smartphone and tablet applications.
