Monday, January 30, 2023

The Minister of Labor welcomed the initiative and appreciated that the positions that the women of the crew will have access to "are significantly better paid" than those they traditionally occupy in the sector.
After two years of works, the Grande Hermine ship was presented last Thursday, a vessel of French origin that was specially conditioned to have a crew of men and women on board. The activity took place in the Port of Montevideo and was attended by the Secretary of the Presidency, Álvaro Delgado, the Minister of Labor and Social Security (MTSS), Pablo Mieres, the director of the National Women's Institute, Mónica Bottero, and the President of the National Administration of Ports, Juan Curbelo.
The history of the vessel in Uruguay began two years ago when it was bought by the Uruguayan fishing and processing company Ciupsa, which is part of the Uruguayan Chamber of Fishing Industries (CIPU). In a statement released by the company, it is said that the works were carried out with Uruguayan labor and about 40 people worked. The text includes a quote from Gino Settin, director of Cipusa, who explains that during the renovation "six freezing tunnels, two plate cabinets, a complete refrigeration installation were installed, in addition to the general conditioning of the crew's comforts and in fishing gear”.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: Bottom fishing mobilizes when it comes out that Brussels will veto trawling in 30% of its waters

Friday, January 27, 2023

After several delays, the European Commission announced that as of February 20 it would present the action plan to protect marine biodiversity, the one that pursues the couplet that by 2030 30% of community waters are protected, 10% with a complete ban. But the document, at least in draft, has been leaked before, allowing shipowners to confirm that Brussels wants to expel all kinds of moving bottom gear from these marine protected areas.

The ban on trawling, as contained in that draft plan, would be gradual, so States should take steps to phase it out of existing marine protected areas (MPAs).
