Gordon Jewkes

Gordon Jewkes identified that the fishing resources around the Falkland Islands could provide a valuable source of income in the form of selling licenses. In the period following the invasion, there was no requirement to tread carefully on the sensibilities of the Argentines who might otherwise have been expected to object to such a move. It helped to make the island economically more self-sufficient as it diversified from its dependence on the price of wool for its prosperity.
