The State Secretariat for the Environment (Sema-MT) announced that the Piracema period ended this Thursday (1st), however, fishing continues to be prohibited in 17 rivers that border other states. A prohibition only applies to the territory of neighboring states, where the prohibition period is still in force. On the Mato Grosso side, fishermen must follow the rules of the Zero Transport law.

Rivers that border MT:

  • Amazon – Juruena River
  • For – Teles Pires River and São Manuel
  • Tocantins – Araguaia River
  • Goiás – Araguaia River
  • Mato Grosso do Sul – Paraguay River, São Lourenço River, Piquiri or Itiquira River, Correntes River, Rio do Peixe and Ribeirão Furna
  • Rondônia – Captain Cardoso River, Tenente Marques River, Iquê River and Cabixi River
  • Bolivia – Guaporé River, Rio Verde and Corixo Grande

According to Sema, the fishing ban in the states mentioned above follows the period established by the Union, which begins in November and ends in February.

Zero Transport Law is challenged

The Brazilian Democratic Movement (MDB) and Social Democratic Party (PSD) parties filed an unconstitutionality action against the Zero Transport Law, which prohibited, in practice, professional fishing in the rivers of Mato Grosso, which came into force this year.

The State that maintains the transport, storage and commercialization of the species Cachara, Caparari, Dourado, Jaú, Matrinchã, Pintado/Surubin, Piraíba, Piraputanga, Pirara, Pirarucu, Trairão and Tucunaré for a period of 5 years.
