La Ola es una publicación original del CEM concebida para propiciar un ambiente informativo para el sector pesquero y de conservación marino-costera en Honduras. De tal manera, esperamos compartir y maximizar el potencial de aprendizaje que surge en la medida nuestras experiencias de gestión sobre los recursos marino-costeros prueban ser un camino viable de crecimiento económico y social.
