Latin American fisheries, globalisation and the sustainability debate: a relocation boundaries?

Abstract

This chapter describes how Latin America was integrated into the global fisheries production system in the post-1945 period, highlighting the roles played by both foreign and domestic fleets in the process. Using globalisation and state-denial theories, it charts the impact that the globalisation process has had upon the exploitation and sustainability of fish stocks in Latin American waters. It argues that while globalisation may indeed boost environmental awareness and lead to more sustainable harvests through the decreased influence of local political interests, this has yet to happen in Latin America.
