Ecology on the High Seas: Piracy, Postcolonialism, and the Westward March of Pacific South America

Abstract:

In the second half of the 20th century, the global “race for fish” entered a new industrial era in which nation-states battled to reconfigure geopolitical boundaries on the high seas. Along the subequatorial Pacific coast of South America, Ecuador, Chile, and Peru—emerging fishing nations with longstanding tensions over their terrestrial boundaries—aligned against a common enemy: the high-tech, long-distance fleets of traditional maritime powers. At the same time, these nations also competed for access to marine resources in a shared coastal ecosystem, where the rapid intensification of fishing created new tensions among them. This paper explores the historic intersections among Pacific marine ecologies, fisheries development, and the postwar geopolitical strategies of Latin American nations staking claims to elusive oceanic resources, as diplomatic negotiations over the international Law of the Sea unfolded in the decades following the 1947 Truman Proclamation.
