Resumen

A strategic study of biological-fishing behavior of the main variables determined for extensive freshwater aquaculture was made in facilities of the Camagüey Fishing Company, province of Camagüey, Cuba. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the organizational insertion within the current Cuban social and economic scenario. Several variable sequence graphs were made, and the degree of dependence and ratio among them was determined through the Pearson coefficient. The highest sustainable catch was also calculated, and the state of technical and productive facilities was evaluated as well. Therefore, it was concluded that the current situation of aquaculture does not favor sustainable development, though a number of priority actions were identified: renovation of technical and production facilities, strategic orientation of the fishing efforts in all the water reservoirs, and diversification of fishing produc-tions.
