About 25 turtles are found dead per week by groups of environmentalists in Vitória because of fishing nets in prohibited places. In 2020, the city hall of the capital seized almost 20 thousand meters of nets in seven operations to combat illegal fishing in the municipality, in partnership with environmental agencies.

The undersecretary of Environment of Vitória, Ademir Barbosa, explains that the inspection is carried out in places where fishing is prohibited. This area of ​​environmental protection is called Baía das Tartarugas and comprises the Port of Tubarão to the Farol de Santa Luzia.
