Figure-H4.87.0

Fig. H4.87.0 shows the boundaries of the Southeast Pacific (Major Fishing Area 87) corresponding to the CPPS Area for statistical purposes.

A description of the area and its subareas, divisions and subdivisions follows:

All marine waters of the Southeast Pacific bounded by a line commencing from a point on the coast of South American Mainland at the border between Panama and Colombia at 7°12'39''N latitude and 77°53'20''W longitude; thence running on a rhumb line in a southwesterly direction to 5°00'N latitude and 79°52''W longitude; thence running due west along the parallel 5°00'N to the meridian 120°00'W; thence due south to 60°00'S latitude; thence due east along this parallel to a point at 67°16'W longitude; thence due north to 56°22'S latitude; thence due east to 65°43'W longitude; thence due north to 55°22'S latitude; thence in a northwesterly direction along a rhumb line and across the Beagle Canal to the border between Chile and Argentina; thence in a northerly direction along the Pacific coast of South America to the point of departure.

The Southeast Pacific is divided into the following subareas, divisions and subdivisions:
Northern (Subarea 87.1)
All the marine waters bounded by a line commencing from a point on the coast of South American mainland at the border between Panama and Colombia at 7°12'39''N latitude and 77°53'20''W longitude; thence running on a rhumb line in a southwesterly direction to 5°00'N latitude and 79°52''W longitude; thence due west along parallel 5°00'N to meridian 120°00'W; thence due south to 18°20'S latitude; thence due east along this parallel to meet the coast of South America; thence in a northerly direction along the coast to the point of departure.

Northern Coastal (Division 87.1.1)
All the marine waters contained in a strip within 100 miles from the Pacific coast of South America, starting at 7°12'39''N latitude and running in a southwesterly direction to 5°00'N latitude; thence south along the coast to 18°20'S latitude.

Division 87.1.1 is subdivided into 5 subdivisions: 87.1.11 - 87.1.15
Northern Intermediate (Division 87.1.2)
