BRITO, Eliseu Pereira de  and  SHIMASAKI, Matheus Miranda. Artisanal fishing in the low river Araguaia in Araguatins, Tocantins, Brazil. Rev. Geog. Amer. Central [online]. 2021, n.67, pp.221-241. ISSN 2215-2563.

In this research we seek to portray artisanal fishing in the lower Araguaia River, delimiting a spatial scale of the municipality of Araguatins in the north of the State of Tocantins, in the Legal Amazon. It is an Amazonian and cerrado forest environment in the transition areas belonging to the Araguaia-Tocantins hydrographic basin. To do the research we use the qualitative exploratory research method with field research. The results showed that the modernization of the territory was demanded by the technical-scientific introduction in the fishery and in the territory. It modernized the objects of artisanal fishing and, at the same time, modified the way the riverside fishermen deal with the river, introducing new contents in the conception of production and preservation of the environment.
