ALVAREZ B, Catalina; GAJARDO C, Claudio  and  THER R, Francisco. Actors and territorial conflicts in a figure of public administration of artesanal-fisheries: In the case of contiguous zone in Los Lagos and Aysén region, south of Chile. Magallania [online]. 2016, vol.44, n.1, pp.131-147. ISSN 0718-2244.

During centuries there has been population displacement between the surroundings of Isla Grande de Chiloé and the Guaitecas's Archipelago. After the regionalization of the country, fisherman's journeys of Los Lagos Region to Aysén were managed under a political and administrative figure. In this case, the Contiguous Zone implied that the regional government agreed commitments and compensation through a Public-Private Table responsible of defining with political, scientific, business and artisanal-fisheries criteria, types and volumes of resource extraction. This work describes relationships and strategies that unfold around the Contiguous Zone and Public-Private Table, identifying actors and conflicts according to discursive contexts. The agency capacity in the speeches of actors shows a link between the sociopolitical and socioterritorial plans that, constituting a social interface, shows the oppositions and/ or complementarities in relations between the actors and their speeches. As a whole, basis for reflection intended to create an awareness about alternatives under a comprehensive and updated policy vision of artisanal fisheries are provided.

Keywords : littoral societies; actors and territorial conflicts; political anthropology; recursos pesquero-artesanales; pesca artesanal.
