This area extend 360 km along the coast of Rio Negro province, in northern Patagonia. Systematic studies carried out in the area for over 10 years show an intensive fishing signal, one of the most prominent of the Patagonian Atlantic coast. The fishing record in this portion of Patagonia includes ichthyoarchaeological remains (fish bones and otoliths) and fishing technology (lithic weights). We have identified over 100 loci, in which were recovered ca.18,000 fish remains, including bones and otoliths of at least 15 species and over 200 lithic weights. These fisheries contexts dating to the middle Holocene and continue without interruption until the late Holocene final. Fishing remains analysis was complemented by technological, actualistic, environmental, and geoarchaeological studies, carriedforth in the scope of the overall project. This allowed us to advance our knowledge about fishing practices of San Matias Gulf groups from many different lines of analysis. Addressed in a holistic manner this evidence allows to generate a robust data body on fishing practices and their implications for various aspects of human groups life beyond subsistence (e.g., including mobility, spatial organization, technology) .
