In Patagonia, Argentina, (from 42º00 SL to 47º00 SL) it is developing an important shrimp fishery, target on "Patagonian Red Shrimp" (Pleoticus muelleri), caught by twin trawler freezer fleet. Since 2001, the survey was optimized and the fishery was surveyed by the Fisheries Secretariat of the Province of Chubut by means OOBPPCh, that collects of the fishery biological information about target specie and by catch, contributing to strengthen knowledge about ecosystem and biodiversity of the fishing areas. Specimens were identified on board by trained observers following a protocol.
