A significant decline in catches of squid (Illex argentinus) in Argentine waters at the end of the season, has forced the return to port of several Argentine flagged jiggers, according to a report this week from the country's Coast Guard station in Mar del Plata. Read full article

    They ( the squid ) all swim to the FALKLANDS as we treat them better, they have pristine seas without deletrious nad excreta, they love it here.

    Perhaps they should have purchased licences for 'Falkland waters.' :-)

    As with every business the high inflation and low productivity of rg workers will drive them out of business.
    It won't be long now

    Illux argentinus is being renamed by Royal Decree to ILLEX FALKLANDUS as they ( the squid do not like the Argie fishermen ) as they do not have time to breed before they are caught. Argentina let the fish stocks build up and stop overfishing.

    Argentina can and will fish as much as it wants in it's EEZ. If it drives all species to extinction, not a bloody thing the rest of the planet can do about it.

    @8. And then you can starve. Or you could try eating each other! There's an extinction that would be worthwhile.

    Brits know a lot about famine huh? Never been one major famine in Argentine history. England???

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_famines

    1005, 1235, 1586, 1649, 1727, 1728....

    Funny how I see all the nations of Europe, Asia, and almost all nations of Latin America on the list... even the USA?

    Only one nation on Earth that has never known FAMINE.

    Off you go inferior human!

    “Never been one major famine in Argentine history”

    Ask the Argentine conscripts around Stanley who were not given food during the 1982 war(they had to go into town and steal from food dumps and when found were stretched out in freezing weather or beaten)-a lack of food=famine.

    Also the Argentine workers at their Antarctic research station last year nearly ran out of food-so I suppose that only counts as an 'almost famine.'

    Only one?

    I must have missed the Great Australian Famine.... or even the Not-so-great Australian Famine.

    Only nations that are 200 years old and over count. It would be ridiculous to count in juvenile, immature nations like yours.

    “Only nations that are 200 years old and over count.”

    Well as we have been a nation for 226 years then we are still within the bounds of your ranting. We have only been a nation-state for 113 years. Lucky you didn't say state.

    “It would be ridiculous to count in juvenile, immature nations like yours.”

    Thank God for being part of something so juvenile and immature. No coups, no dictatorships, no famines, no defaults and economic basket case.

    Haha yes, the country that is everything that Argentina can't be. You have had longer to get it right and you still can't. That's alright you can learn from us.

    The impressive wiki on famine is pretty misleading on the USA. It in regards to A small island of Yupic Eskimos in the Bering Strait in 1878-80. We bought Alaska a decade earlier. We probably didn't even realize the people were there.

    I love how Toby, Think and the rest of the Rgs use half truths to try to get a point across and then fail miserably when someone takes 5 minutes of research to show their lies.

    Here's the link to the so called USA famine:

    @13 The underscore Trolling underscore Stone

    “It would be ridiculous to count in juvenile, immature nations like yours”.

    Is that because Australia's economy is better than yours?

    I guess what makes Argentina so mature is the fact that the older they get, the least developed they get.

    Has there been a famine in the UK during the same time period as Argentina has been a nation state?
    Hmm
    Hmm..... No. That is the only comparison worthwhile.

    “Only nations over 200 years old count” who appointed you as the rule maker for this made up game? Idiot.

    As for 'juvenile nation like Australia' you really have no idea. People are quite literally queuing up to emigrate there. A young country in modern terms but they show greater maturity than the crap emanating from La Casa Rosada.

    Over fishing is ok and Argentina would not be punished by other nations?
    Oh do sod off Nostril, the squid are more intellectual than you, and they are all fleeing to the Falklands!
