Abstract: The macrobenthic assemblages of the Buenos Aires Province(Argentina) continental shelf were studied from samples collected by the R/V Capitán Cánepa and R/V Capitán Oca Balda along a transect from38 m to 218 m depth. Three faunistic areas were determined,corresponding to the coastal, central and external shelf, inhabited by species originated from the Argentine and/or Magellanic Zoogeographical Provinces. These results confirm the presence of different ecological areas in the Argentine continental shelf. Mussel (Mytilus edulis platensis) beds, red porgy (Sparus pagrus) fishing ground and the Argentine-Uruguayan Common Fishing Zone (CFZ) demersal fishing grounds at the continental shelf of Buenos Aires Province were also analyzed to increase the knowledge of the macrobenthic communities of this area.
