Resumen

El visón americano Neogale vison, introducido en Argentina desde principios del siglo XX, se reconoce como una de las mayores amenazas locales a la biodiversidad. Dentro de los métodos de control existentes, se implementan la erradicación y el manejo. Desde 2019 se implementa el control del número de visones en el Parque Nacional Los Alerces, mediante trampas de captura viva, calculando los costos. Se capturaron 16 visones en el área, con un coste variable, acorde principalmente a la dificultad de acceso. Se propone mantener el manejo en el tiempo para evaluar su eficacia e incorporar los costos a futuros programas.
