IN BRIEF - ARVI is part of the CIRCAZUL project

SPAIN
Wednesday, January 25, 2023

CIRCAZUL, 'Towards a Circularity of Inorganic Waste from the fishing sector in the context of Blue Growth', integrates fishing organizations (ARVI, the Vigo Fishermen's Guild, OPROMAR, FAAPE, FACOPE, Sanlúcar Guild), AGAPA, the Agency Port Authority of Andalusia, ports of General Interest (Port of Vigo and Port of Marín) and regional ports (ports of Punta Umbría, Isla Cristina, Motril, Estepona) and 3 Knowledge Spaces (CETMAR, the Port Authority of Vigo and the University of Cádiz) of Galicia and Andalusia.
 
The general objective of the CIRCAZUL project is to prevent and combat marine pollution by capitalizing on existing information and knowledge, developing and demonstrating waste collection and recovery systems (especially plastic) from the fishing sector, and promoting alliances between different sectors and agents. These objectives are in line with the principles of the circular economy and with the zero pollution objectives of the Green Deal.
 
The results of the project will be applied and transferred to other regions through the Interterritorial Communication Platform for Knowledge Spaces on Blue Growth, as well as through specific communication actions that will facilitate the implementation of current legislation, contributing to some healthy marine ecosystems that allow the development of a blue economy.

IN BRIEF - Sernapesca surprises 46 vessels in breach of fishing regulations

CHILE
Monday, February 06, 2023

After carrying out a prior inspection analysis with documentary and satellite analysis, Sernapesca Aysén organized an air operation to control a total of 68 vessels that were carrying out extractive activities and transporting resources in the sector of the Gulf of Penas, the Tres Montes peninsula and Byron Island in the region, detecting 68% non-compliance, corresponding to 46 vessels.
 
In this way, among the main non-compliances detected were 14 artisanal vessels from the Los Lagos region extracting red luga in the Tres Montes Gulf, an area that is excluded from the contiguous zone agreement because it is included within the Laguna San Rafael Park and therefore with prohibition of resource extraction in that place.
 
In addition, 5 artisanal vessels from the Los Lagos region were identified extracting pippin in the oceanic waters sector of the Aysén region without the respective authorization, and another 27 artisanal vessels in the Byron Island sector that were extracting red luger, of which 9 belonged to the Magallanes region, without authorizations to operate in the Aysén region, and 18 to the Los Lagos region without authorization to enter contiguous areas.

GHANA
Monday, February 06, 2023

The Fishery Commission, an implementing agency of the Ministry of Fisheries and Aquaculture Development, has conducted a simulation exercise on Illegal Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing activities in the country’s territorial waters.

The exercise, performed in a commercial vessel, was to highlight the impact of illegal activities in the fishing sector and collectively find solutions.

As part of the IUU compliance simulation exercise conducted over the weekend, a Fishery team in collaboration with the Ghana Navy checked the Fishing License, Captain’s Certificate, Chief Engineer’s Certificate, Crew List, Life Jackets, Fishing Nets, and other requisite documents.

It was identified that the vessel was fishing within the Inshore Exclusive Zone, engaging in pair-trawling, and using an unprescribed net, among others.

Richard Klutse, Fishery Manager at the Ministry of Fisheries, said the exercise was to inject sanity into the maritime space as well as ensure that all industry players adhered to the laws governing the sector.(continues...)

BELIZE

Early Mortality Syndrome decimated the Belizean shrimp industry and production has gone downhill since 2016
 
Bloomberg Line — Less than ten years ago, the fishing industry contributed to 7% of Belize's Gross Domestic Product (GDP), being the second most important sector for the country after the tourism industry.
 
In 2014, shrimp aquaculture emerged as one of the sectors with the best income, registering US$45 million for exports (90 million Belizean dollars), according to a report by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
 
However, the fishing industry was completely devastated by Early Mortality Syndrome (EMS) caused by a bacterial strain of Vibrio parahaemolyticus, and many farms began to feel the full effects of the disease in March. of 2015.
 
In 2014, production volume peaked at 16 million pounds, but in the following two years it went downhill to between 1 and 2 million pounds, barely enough to supply the local market.(continued...)

IN BRIEF - Law 21,532 that prevents and penalizes the escape of salmon entered into force

CHILE
Monday, February 06, 2023

After being dispatched to law by the Senate on January 10, and published in the Official Gazette, January 31, this initiative came into force that prevents and penalizes the escape of salmon from aquaculture centers with suspension of operations and with fines.
 
The Undersecretary of Fisheries and Aquaculture, Julio Salas, assures that "this regulation paves the way towards a more sustainable, safe and transparent activity that protects artisanal fishing, since the escape of salmonids from their farming centers generates a direct affectation in the marine ecosystem and the surrounding communities".
 
The five main points of Law 21,532 are the following:
  • It establishes security conditions in the farming and anchoring modules, and the sanction if there is a lack of diligence in this obligation.
  • Sanctions any action that causes salmon escapes with the penalties established in article 440 of the Penal Code.
  • Establishes the obligation and term for the recapture of escaped species.
  • Establishes the collaboration of artisanal ship owners in the recapture process and the declaration of accidental catches of salmonid species.
  • It requires the publication of the quantity and class of antibiotics and antiparasitics used, and their respective biomass, mortality and harvest.
