Latin American and the Carribean partners

The purpose of the regional delegations is to disseminate information and publicise the activities of the World Ocean Network at the global region scale, ensuring relevance by adapting materials to regional needs.

CeDePesca organised the first regional meeting in 2007 in Argentina. The countries participating in this meeting were Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Chile, Colombia, Equador, Peru, Mexico, Uruguay and Venezuala.
CeDePesca produces a regular World Ocean Network newsletter for regional delegation members/participants.
In 2009 CeDepesca organised COLACMAR in collaboration with National Aquarium of Cuba. This World Ocean Network regional workshop focused on the exchange of information and project development work aimed at strengthening the impact of World Ocean Network activities.
10 countries from the region were represented: Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Chile, Cuba, Equador, France and Guadaloupe, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay.
