The squid game

Netflix broadcasts the Asian series "The Squid Game." This shows various characters struggling to get out alive from competitions in which the lack of cooperation between the characters is a constant that ends up harming everyone.

In Peru, in recent weeks, we have also had our own game for the management of the giant squid, as well as a dynamic of conflict between the Executive and the Parliament.

One of the characteristics of the defunct cabinet was its lack of experience and capacity for public management, the promotion of violence and confrontation between Peruvians, and an unfortunate selection of cadres for key positions in the state apparatus. In little more than 60 days, they filled Peruvians with dread. The new Council of Ministers must transmit to our inhabitants the confidence and cohesion necessary to face the challenges of the Nation and put an end to the dangerous game of the predecessor.

One of the greatest weaknesses of the dismissed President of the Council of Ministers was the absence of public policy proposals, which would constitute a path for citizens. There were only slogans, threats, legal impossibilities and a feeling of leap into the void. Peruvians need to know where we are going and we do not perceive it yet.

For example, in the fishing and aquaculture sector there is talk of modifying the fishing law, promoting fish consumption, supporting the artisanal sector and other common places. However, it has not been made known what will be the main lines of State management that make such goals possible.

From time to time, since May 2021, our artisanal vessels can register with the South Pacific Regional Fisheries Management Organization (RFMO-PS), to have the right to legally fish in international waters.

Only seven, of the thousands of jigging vessels, have achieved their registration because it was not promoted properly, nor were those interested who decided to apply. Although it is a strategic issue for the country, with direct implications for the fulfillment of international commitments, it does not seem to be a matter of interest.

Another pending issue in the PS-RFMO is the transition to science-based fisheries management. An essential step to achieve this is the development of the first population evaluation models of the resource; however, in this matter our representatives before that body demonstrate that they are not in a hurry.

Something essential, in light of dozens of revelations of illegal fishing by Asian vessels in Peruvian jurisdictional waters, is that the government present the corresponding complaints to the PS-RFMO Technical Compliance Committee. So far, this illegal fishing, which has recently been verified in situ by the international agency Associated Press and Univisión, has not motivated pronouncements by the Peruvian government. The Committee for the Sustainable Management of the Giant Squid (CALAMASUR) always, in a solitary way, pronounces on the matter in its capacity as observer in the meetings of the RFMO-PS.

Finally, on October 5, the three-year deadline to complete the formalization process for the 2505 vessels participating in the SIFORPA II program was completed. Sadly, despite the efforts made by artisanal shipowners, the state bureaucracy has only managed to grant fishing permits to just under 200 vessels (8% of the total). This has led to an Urgency Decree extending the deadlines once again to complete this eternal problem.

As we see, in our own squid game, we are losing.

Let's change strategy.
