Despite of the relative stagnation of the worlwide fishing production, fishing is still an important activity in economic, cultural and social terms. In relation to Brazil, it is known that there are more than 800 thousand profesionals involved, being that the sector produce a R$5 bilions of PIB. Being that at least the last 10 years the fisinhg production has been mostly boosted in relation Farming/Agriculture, growing about 350 thousand tons from 2003 to 2011 comparing with the extractive fishing that grown just 90 thousand tons in the same period/at the same time. In this sense, this effort aims for the compreension of the capital expansion with respect to of the brazilian fishing production, it expansion territories and what are the consequences of this process for the workers. In such a way to verify the strategies and actions of this capital, the ways of control and subordination of the nature and the work, but also the role of the State as a manager and promoter of the Agriculture speech while a necessary challenge for the country growth. On the other hand, we are going to analise the strategies and the alternative ways for the resistence re(criated) by the artisanal fishermen in front of this logic, as we are going to verify the social/sindical movements actions.
