Guerrero Negro Rock Crab Fishermen
Guerrero Negro Baja Sur
Mexico
Alejandro Guerrero first visited the Baja red rock crab fishing villages near Guerrero Negro (300 miles south of San Diego) in 2011. He met the local fishermen who trapped the rock crabs from their small day boats known as pangas -- and listened to their request to find someone to help them bring the crabs to market. He worked with them to set up the first processing plant, the size of a home garage, by the summer of 2012.

Our Approach

Alejandro and his processing facility, Basik 5, have grown to a 15-person crew supported by 25 fishermen along Baja's coast. They are proud to generate jobs and help the fishermen earn an honest income. Carlos (pictured here) is one fisherman who lives in the small fishing village near to Guerrero Negro (300 miles south of the border), with no more than 50 humble houses and 200 residents. Carlos has a wife and three kids who go to the local elementary school every day and learn mathematics, history, civics even English. On the weekends two of them go with his father in his small panga boat and help him pull up the crab traps. Carlos' dream is that one day his children will go to Ensenada for high school and college and study Marine Sciences. For that dream Carlos needs to work hard everyday. With our help we hope this dream will come true.
