    @2 3000 people care about 3000 people.

    it seems like 41 million Argentinians don't give a shit about the other 41 million who live in Argentina though...

    Argentina would be well advised to consider the ramification of withdrawal from simple scientific exchanges at the south-west atlantic fisheries management with the Falklands, and to step back from its current policy of active and blatant depradation of straddling and migratory fish stocks. Yet another Kirchner policy of trying to economically and politically cripple the Falklands, but Falklands is all good news as evidenced by the above article.

    It is certainly no surprise that the fishing stocks in the Falklands are well managed because the Falklands is well governed. The community there place on lot of importance on conserving their environment.

    In contrast, Argentina is governed by a foolish, corrupt and short sighted government....the well-regarded Economist magazine has published another article this week, that condemns the Argentine government after its irresponsible nationalisation of the Spanish oil company there.

    No reason why our fisheries shouldn't be well managed, any decent nation can manage their resources properly....unless, of course, you're a nation of stupid, greedy, self-serving dickheads like Argentina is.

    “Who cares about 3000 people...” Malvinero1 (#2)

    I do.
    I also care about the fisheries and other wildlife, both terrestrial and marine.
    I care about conservation of populations and communities,
    and about the depredations of stocks by over-exploitation.

    The world is not well served by current Argentinian attitudes in these matters.

    It is clear from the hysteria shown here by the Malvanistas that they feel threatened by the continuing success emanating from the FIG commercial and conservancy decisions for the Falklands (there are no Malvinas).

    Contrast this with the abject lack of cohesive policies on any subject shown by the present bunch of corrupt 'government' ministers of Argentina, led by the Mad Bitch herself and the FatBoy wanabee president: he of the malevolent demeanour.

    If it were not for the constant harassment of the peaceful inhabitants of the Falklands I, and I suspect many others, would not even bother with Argentina.

    lost that one, Martin.

    As Malv says (#11),

    Yes, I do lay awake at night considering how different it might have been if:

    the UK had not joined the EEC with its CFP/CAP,
    the UK had rejected nuclear armaments in the Polaris era,
    the UK had kept up its nuclear energy programme and developed tidal power,
    the UK had rejected the Blair/Brown governments/wars,
    the UK had controlled the banks' lendings via Labour's Chancellors, the FSA and the BoE,
    the UK had exercised effective border control.

    We might have had a different UK/world; perhaps not a better one, but certainly a different one.
    This is not hindsight in 20:20 vision;
    these are things I fought for, with the success that is apparent to all :-(

    The number and efficiency of modern fishing fleets is such that any marine stocks not managed, and well managed, simply will not be there in a few years time.

    Does anyone know what is Argentina’s policy on fisheries management, since the end of cooperation.
