Abstract:This dissertation chronicles the changes Chimbote underwent and scrutinizes the reasons for those changes, arguing that, rather than focusing on the decline of the ecosystem, there was in fact a new ecosystem produced. This new ecosystem emerged as a result of the actions of the major players in the ecosystem: the entrepreneurs who sought to accrue profits, the state that was mandated to protect the environment but was unable to control the explosive growth of the industry, and the fishermen who due to their unstable work conditions and the culture of fishing, extracted as much fish from the ocean as much as they could.
