    Why Falklands' conservation and management zone is so productive

    Ilex argentinus immigrates into Falklands waters seasonally and is the largest squid resource in the Soutwest Atlantic.

    Three decades ago, on 29 October 1986 a Proclamation declaring the Interim Falklands Conservation and Management Zone was signed by then Governor Jewkes, which helped to transform the Islands economy. The anniversary has been marked by several events, and this week was the turn for a scientific approach on how and why the waters around the Falklands are so rich in marine life.
