To date, there are 10 Geographical Indications by Denomination of Origin in Brazil, one of which is the Costa Negra shrimp in Ceará. In this context, the purpose of this study was to describe the importance of the registration of Geographical Indication in the quality assurance in the shrimp production chain of Costa Negra, characterizing the region and relating the advantages that IG brought to the commercialization of the product and development of the region. The research was developed through the collection of information in electronic databases such as Scielo and Science Direct, as well as data from official sites.
