Falkland Islands - Argentine Shortfin Squid Value Chain Analysis 2019
Despite challenges, the Illex (Illex argentinus) fishery presents new opportunities for Falkland Island fishing companies. This research investigates the potential economic and financial benefits to the Falkland Islands of greater engagement (e.g. ownership in harvesting operations, sales and marketing ventures) in the Illex fishery and associated value chains. The findings contribute evidence to a programme of natural capital assessment (NCA) being implemented by the UK Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) and conducted by the South Atlantic Environmental Research Institute (SAERI) in the UK South Atlantic Overseas Territories. Funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) managed Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF), the work sits under its Environmental Resilience programme which includes objectives to integrate natural capital considerations into economic and social development planning.
