The Tracker Program is a project comprised of several research groups and several communities driven by the Gulf of California Marine Program. The main objective is to work with communities to understand the health status of commercially important fishery resources and their relationship to the habitat that sustains them. Since 2009, fishermen from various communities have helped us collect data related to fishing activity. We have been able to analyze and visualize the collected data generating valuable information for the communities because it documents the use of its resources. Also, we have incorporated other data that have allowed us to identify the relationship of fishing with other ecological processes such as the migration of the curvina (Cynoscion othonopterus) in its time of reproduction (Erisman et al., 2012). Currently the fishing communities of San Felipe in Baja California, El Golfo de Santa Clara in Sonora, Punta Abreojos, Puerto Adolfo López Mateos, Puerto San Carlos and Puerto Chale in Baja California Sur have joined the Tracker Program to understand the link between their fisheries and natural resources including the space - time component.
