Fishing professionals will have their first congress

We're already on the countdown to CONIPE. It's coming on the 1st. National Congress of Fisheries Engineering to be held in Puerto Madryn.


On November 27th, 28th and 29th, UTN Regional School  Chubut  will have a memorable experience. Pioneer in its dictatorship, it will host the 1st National Congress of Fisheries Engineering.

With different proposals and special guests,  CONIPE  will seek to establish itself as a construction space for the fishing, scientific-technological and educational sector at the national level. Promoting the meeting, communication and debate on issues related to fishing and aquaculture activities.

 About Fisheries Engineering 

A curious fact about the career is that it is only taught at the National Technological  University  . In other words, it is not possible to study it in other educational centers or institutes. Fisheries engineers specialize in the development of engineering systems and research projects, as well as in the exploitation and industrialization of fish and aquaculture resources.

This 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of its implementation for the first time in  Chubut . It was at the Chubut Regional School in Puerto Madryn, where it started in 1994. Today it is also held in  Mar del Plata  and  Tierra del Fuego ; key points of our marine geography.

 About CONIPE 

CONIPE was declared of interest by the Chamber of Deputies of the Nation and by the Provinces of Chubut and Tierra del Fuego. Also for the Municipality of Puerto Madryn.

Fisheries resources, the economy and sustainable development, education in this field, and public policies, will be the focus of this meeting.

Two  masterful talks  are planned by the specialist Juan Freire. Originally from Spain, but based in Mexico, he will talk about “Talent and Innovation in the Fisheries Sector” and “Transformation of Education”. In addition, Gabriela Navarro, from the Under-Secretary of Fisheries and Aquaculture of the Nation, will present “Ecosystem Approach to Argentine Fisheries”.

In turn, there will be a series of  technical talks  given by representatives of sponsoring companies who joined this event.There will also be a  working table  on fishing engineering such as RR. HH important, for  the growth of national fishing activity.  It will be joined by two  round tables  on value added in industry and contributions of associations and trade unions in vocational training. There will also be a third, and very special, on progress and challenges of the role of women in the fisheries sector.

On the other hand, a  cinema debate  with the screening of the film  Barcos de Papel.  In addition, a scientific café  entitled “South Atlantic” will be held with important references on the Law of the Sea.

An INET truck will offer, during the three days,  open cooking courses  with Argentine fish and aquaculture resources. You will be able to visit business stands and enjoy a food court and recreational beer space. There, there will be cultural closures during the three days of the congress.

Fishing Engineering Days

As part of the closure of CONIPE, the  V Fisheries Engineering Conference  will be held where students, graduates and teachers of the career will present their work. This will be joined by  CONIPE Estudiana , an activity in which Chubut technical schools will participate. Exhibitions and workshops are planned with the students of the participating schools. The closing will be on Saturday, November 30, with a field trip to Kaiser Beach, where young people can venture out with marine fauna.
