Abstract or Summary
  • Fisheries exploitation at a large scale in the South Atlantic is recent. Fisheries have experienced an extraordinary growth in the last 15 years. In Argentina the growth of fisheries exploitation took place at unprecedented rates, and this has been one of Argentina's most dynamic economic sectors in recent times. It has been categorized as the world's fastest growing fishery. Value added grew steadily and exports, for example, grew nearly 500 percent in a decade. Nevertheless, this growth did not take place with adequate acknowledgment of implicit nor explicit adequate management instruments and resulting in near collapse of some species as well as social conflict. When the costs and benefits are analyzed, it is evident that rapid unmanaged growth in fisheries exploitation in Argentina has ended in a crisis situation and near collapse for some species. Conjunctions of factors, mainly associated to international trade patterns changes and management capacity deficiencies, have brought about this situation. At this juncture, a series of analysis are taking place in order to revert crisis situation and recover fisheries, taking into account the particular situations a developing country must face in order to transition to sustainable yet responsible fisheries. The paper analyzes how changes in the Argentine fisheries sectors structure must take place for the implementation of recovery policies while at the same time improve long-term management in a developing country context.
