The Latin American Fisheries Fellowship program held its first international workshop, “New Fisheries Frontiers: A Course in Spatial Fisheries Management and Applications in Latin America,” in July 2012. Developed in partnership with the Estacion Costera de Investigaciones Marinas of the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile (PUC), the workshop featured professors from Latin America and the United States presenting on the latest research topics, including governance, spatial management tools for fisheries, and policy. The 25 participants represented managers, students, and scientists from more than a dozen Latin American and U.S. government agencies, non-profits, and universities.
