Nowadays there are fishery resources that have suffered the consequences of overexploitation, pollution or climate change, therefore, the population of marine organisms of commercial importance has diminished noticeably. One of the alternatives to mitigate this reduction, is the diversification of the fishery and aquaculture activity, through value creation.To do this, there is a great number of species to cultivate and that have not been seized due to the lack of interest or knowledge, in addition that the fishery communities have not been provided with the sufficient technology to allow its correct exploitation and leave their comfort zone. In that manner, this article has as a general objective to develop an added value proposal for the commercialization of crabs, through a Soft Shell Crab closed system technical production, for the coastal region of the State of Sonora, in such a way to be taken as a viable option of economic and social growingfor the community, by a sustainable development, the establishment of communication mechanisms and a permanent concentration among the different actors and factors that will constitute the soft crab technical process, acceding the establishment of strategic alliances and commercial agreements for the integration of productive chains with the participation in state and national production programs, with the purpose of product commercialization.
