The course “New frontiers in fisheries management: Application of territorial tools in Latin America” was held in the Estación Costera de Investigaciones Marinas at Las Cruces, from 19th-29th July 2012. It dealt with global challenges, such as the status of world fisheries and how poorly they are evaluated, with particular emphasis on artisanal and local fisheries, employing mainly novel tools such as marine territorial management and socio-economical aspects of fisheries management.

The workshop ¨Embracing complexity: looking at Chilean fisheries socio-ecosystems¨ was held at ECIM (Las Cruces) from 6-8 December 2012. It was an important aspect of a broader initiative by the Millennium Nucleus Center for Marine Conservation of Universidad Católica de Chile, the aim of which is to integrate conservation efforts of marine resources in Chile. The objective was to use an integrated and interdisciplinary approach to describe and understand the complex socio-ecosystem of Chilean fisheries in order to find ways in which these interconnected networks can be understood to foster a sustainable usage of marine resources and preserve coastal biodiversity.

Organizing team: Sergio Navarrete, Stefan Gelcich and Camilo Rodríguez (CCM); Eric Berlow (Vibrant Data Labs, California)
