Among his most relevant works stand out the defense of squid fishing with jiggers against trawling, the beginning of the MSC Certification through a FIP (Fishing Improvement Projects, for its acronym in English) SQUID-CAPA and place on the national discussion table the issue of Mile 201 and IUU fishing (Unreported and Unregulated).
