By Matt Venezia, Bloomberg News | 12 May 2014 07:16:30 | 06 commentsBy now, it’s common knowledge that fish are plentiful in South America, where fishing has been an integral part of our way of life for thousands of years.
But what’s surprising about South America is how easily these fish can be caught, and how much more efficient it is than in North America.
The question is: how much fish do we actually catch?
This is a question that’s often debated in fish farms, and that debate continues even though there’s little data available on fish catches in South American countries.
That’s because many of the countries in South and Central America are also among the most heavily exploited in the world.
But that’s largely because of how difficult it is to catch fish in those countries.
“There are more fish, the catch rate is higher, the water quality is better, there are fewer predators, so you have more of them,” says Luis Ceballos, a professor at the University of São Paulo and a fisheries expert.
“It’s not that they have a higher catch rate, but the catch rates are much lower.”
As it happens, most of South America’s catch rates fall within the range of the catchable fish in North American waters.
“We’re not saying they’re not catching as much fish, but it’s much less,” Ceballs says.
The Catchable Fish of South and South-Central AmericaA few factors that can contribute to a country’s fish catch rate can be easily overlooked.
For one, most countries don’t have a high-quality fish-fishing industry.
And because many fish have long been traded to the U.S., it’s easy for fish traders to move into South America without having to follow rules.
“Fish can be imported and sold from China,” says Carlos J. Fernández, director of the Center for Food Policy and Policy Research at the Mercado Nacional de Estadística e União.
“They can be sold from Mexico, from Peru, from Brazil.”
In other words, the fish you buy and eat in the U, Canada, Mexico and Europe can easily be imported into South and/or Central America.
That means, even if you catch a fish in South or Central America, you’re still far more likely to get a fish from somewhere else.
That means that when you catch fish, you need to be able to identify the fish species.
“When you look at fish, it has to be species-specific,” says Cebalsos.
“For example, if you’re fishing a fish that’s in the Pacific Ocean, you have to know the species of fish.”
Fish are typically caught by using hooks to attach a hook and reel to the fish.
But there are other ways to catch a variety of fish.
For example, you can buy fish bait.
Fish can also be caught in large tanks, which are usually equipped with a net and a trap.
And if you’ve got a big fish like a tuna, you might have to go into the ocean and catch the fish yourself, because there’s no net or a trap to catch the tuna.
A few fish traps, however, are more efficient than the ones you use in the wild.
Fish hooks and traps have a hook that can be attached to the hook on a fish’s tail, which then can be used to catch bait.
This method is easier to catch than fish hooks and trap in the ocean, because fish can swim to other fish and the fish can get away.
But if you have a fish you want to catch, you want it in the water, so there’s more opportunity for a fish to swim away from you.
The catchable catch of fish can vary widely across South and North America, and there are no national catch quotas.
But experts say it’s important to be aware of fish catches because the fish are very important for fisheries.
“The catch of a fish is a very important commodity,” says Fernángez.
“Fish are important to the ecosystem.”
Fish in the South and West have a long history of being a mainstay in the economy of the region, especially for fish farmers.
Fish from the Americas have been sold to North Americans for centuries, and the South American fish industry, which depends on the sale of fish to North America and Europe, is a major driver of global trade.
“The market for fish is huge, and fish farmers are the ones that are doing the buying,” says Jefra Pacheco, a fisheries researcher at the Center of Excellence for Fisheries Research at São José do Sul University.
“Farmers are the main buyers, but a lot of the fish farmers in South Florida have to export their catch to the United States and Europe.”
Fisheries experts say that while there are certain species that are more valuable than others, in general, fish are easier to find than many other foods
