Amidst rumors of a Spanish takeover of Brazil, Count Maurits plotted to advance the interests of the Company, ultimately planning to increase the size of his fleet in order to transport sugar by destroying the Spanish ships. He was also determined to attack the city of Salvador de Bahia by cutting off their access to provisions. This victory would give the Dutch complete control of Brazil. However, the town had been prepared by warnings from deserters, and the Count's plan was thwarted.
