At this time, also it starts to gain importance the exploration of the salt, that soon attracts the dutch interest.
With the bad performance of the canavieira activity in the State, the cattle one, that basically it was a economic activity of subsistence, was developed with the creation of cattle in great farms destined to the supplying of the other next captainships.
