Huarcayo fish farm - the plaice to be

In the Awajún community deforestation, and contamination from chemicals have meant fish numbers have diminished where waters were once teeming with this protein-heavy food source.

Due to several setbacks this year, including escaping fish fry and the lack of good water sources for breeding, Urakusa’s fish farms haven’t advanced as well as the community hoped.

But, in true Awajún style, Huaracayo have offered to give a helping hand, everyone mucked in to get the project off the ground.

How are fish saving the rainforest?

Meet Bernado

Our fintastic fisher


The 42-year-old Jempe President lives in Huaracayo with his four children and is the Manager of the Breeding Centre.

Huaracayo’s fish farms are going swimmingly thanks to Bernado, one of Cool Earth’s greatest assets and the man behind the breeding centre.

Alongside Cool Earth’s Local Coordinator, and fish farming extraordinaire, Josue Morales, Bernado has successfully managed to ensure that the carp in the breeding centre are big and healthy.

They will now be able to produce eggs all year round, providing a continuous source of income and protein for the community members of Huaracayo.

“There is a change in the work we do, before there was not this kind of work due to scarity of fish and so much contamination of the water”
