Pirarucu is a fish used basically for feeding purposes. Its skin usually represents a waste from the food industry and causes biological pollution when discharged.
Pirarucu capture is made in a sustainable way respecting nature’s laws and fish reproduction periods.
The transformation of the material which would normally become residue, is turned into a fashion accessory, generating jobs and incomes for hundreds of workers.
