Pirajubaé Marine Extractive Reserve is an extractive reserve in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil, created in 1993. The purpose was to support sustainable harvesting of shellfish from a shoal in the south bay of the Santa Caterina Island. In recent years, due to various natural and human causes including dredging and over-fishing, the catch has declined steeply. As of early 2016 just three families continued traditional extraction of the shellfish.
