The Southwest Atlantic is home to some of the most productive fisheries in the world. This rich natural capital underpins a dynamic, thriving economy and society in the Falkland Islands, supports coastal communities in South America and contributes to vibrant seafood markets in Asia and Europe. Yet the future of these fisheries is far from assured and the region lags behind all but the worst regional performers in terms of the percentage of fish stocks managed at sustainable levels.
