    Abstract

    As comunidades tradicionais da Zona Costeira do Ceará sofrem com o declínio da pesca, atividades extrativistas e pela falta de oportunidades de emprego. A ostreicultura comunitária se coloca como uma atividade produtiva sustentável e adaptada às condições ambientais locais, que pode ser explorada economicamente em regime comunitário. Neste sentido, este estudo propõe-se avaliar a rentabilidade econômica da ostreicultura comunitária e verificar em que proporção esta atividade contribui com a formação da renda familiar. Este estudo foi realizado na comunidade de Mangabeira, localizada no Município de Eusébio, Ceará, onde foi constituída uma associação produtiva voltada para o cultivo de ostras do mangue no estuário do Rio Pacoti. A metodologia consistiu primeiramente da realização de um diagnóstico socioeconômico dos membros da associação comunitária e, em seguida, das análises de custos, rentabilidade e sensibilidade da ostreicultura. Os resultados mostram que a ostreicultura comunitária exige baixos custos de investimento, proporciona elevada e robusta rentabilidade, e contribui significativamente para formação da renda familiar. -------------------------------------------------Traditional communities of Ceará Coastal Zone are suffering with the declining of fisheries and extractive production as well as lack of employment opportunities. The communitarian oyster farming is being considered as a sustainable activity and adapted to local environmental conditions which can be economically exploited through out common pool resource use. Given that, this study aims to assess the economic return of the communitarian oyster farming and verify in which proportion this activity contributes to the family income. This study was carried out in the Mangabeira community located in Eusébio, Ceará, where a productive association dedicated to mangrove oyster cultivation in the Pacoti River has been established. The methodology consisted first of carrying out a socio-economic assessment of the communitarian association and, after that, of analyzing the oyster farming costs, returns and sensitivity. The results showed that the communitarian oyster farming requires low investment costs, allows high and robust returns and contributes significantly to the familiar income formation.
