The further development of the fisheries in Colombia should consider the identification of potential new resources based on knowledge of characteristics of the deep-sea habitats and the organisms which highlight the need for broad exploratory surveys and an ecosystem approach to fisheries management (EAF). The objective of this work was thus to advice management and conservation strategies for the possible new deep-sea crustacean fisheries in the Colombian Caribbean based on an ecosystem approach to fisheries. The management of both the shallow water shrimp fishery and the potential new deep-sea crustacean fishery should be based on baseline information of the population dynamics and size structure of target species and the optimum level of fishing effort and catch volumes and should also consider the development of strategies for constant resource and ecosystem monitoring. Open ocean marine protected areas for the protection of nursery and spawning areas should also be considered.
