GARCIA, Susana V.. Commercial fishing and the study of marine fauna in Argentina, 1890-1930Commercial fishing and the study of marine fauna in Argentina, 1890-1930. Hist. cienc. saude-Manguinhos [online]. 2014, vol.21, n.3, pp.827-845. ISSN 0104-5970.

This paper examines the relationship between the development of commercial maritime fishing and the study of marine fauna in Argentina between the end of the nineteenth century and the first decades of the twentieth century. It analyzes ichthyological research, the commercialization of fresh maritime products and the opportunities that urban markets offered for the creation of collections. It also focuses on the beginnings of deep-sea fishing, which would make it possible to capture and study new species as well as gather information about the marine environment.

Keywords : commercial fishing; ichthyology; creation of collections; fishing boats..
