ARGENTINA’S POPULAR EXCLUSIVE ECONOMIC ZONE
Payne Institute Earth Observation Group Willie Helms reviews VIIRS satellite imagery to look at Argentina. Argentina is a nation with rich, natural squid resources. Its exclusive economic zone (EEZ) is one of the best places for squid fishing on Earth. The EEZ, spanning for 200 nautical miles from any point of the Argentinean coast, is home to the Argentine shortfin Squid. Because some of the best areas for squid fishing are just near the EEZ boundary, fishing fleets from other countries try to catch these squid by getting as close as possible to the Argentinean EEZ.
