The objective of the symposium is to discuss the impact and effectiveness of fish farming and stocking identifying the benefits and risks of such practices in large river systems of Latin America. Specifically, we seek to understand to what extent and under which circumstances fish farming and stocking are socially and economically viable practices in rural areas with access to diversified and highly productive fisheries, and where artisanal fisheries are an important part of local culture and economy, and when resources would be better spent investing in managing capture fisheries.
