Resumen: "This study describes the progress of the use of the SES perspective and/or the consideration of users’ participation in the scientific literature that study Mexican fisheries, and their inclusion in the fishery management policy. Since 2001, there have been 57 published investigations on 19 fisheries, mostly from the north Pacific (n ¼ 39), focussed mainly on the governance of SES of benthic fisheries, and from the southern Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea (n ¼ 14), where co-management and the spiny lobster fishery are the most studied. From 21 fisheries having a fishery management plan (FMP), only seven have an international sustainability standard, while another seven fisheries having a sustainability standard have no FMP. In addition, only nine fisheries, with literature that addresses the SES perspective and/or considers the user’s participation (out of a total of 19), have a FMP and only four of those fisheries have a sustainability standard. This reflects a mismatch between the interests of the academic, fishery, and government sectors. The SES perspective has been stable in the academic research since 2012, and has been implemented for some fisheries through participatory management processes of international fishery standards"
