The Fisheries and Aquaculture Committee of the National Society of Industries considers that the new BBNJ agreement recently approved by the UN excludes fishing, as well as that it recognizes and values the work of the Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs) in terms of fisheries sustainability and environmental protection to focus on regulating other offshore activities.

After extensive days of negotiations that lasted for more than two weeks in New York (United States), the member states of the United Nations Convention agreed on a new milestone regarding the international treaty on conservation and sustainable use of diversity marine biology in areas beyond national jurisdiction (BBNJ), which will implement management tools in areas of the high seas, cooperation, technology transfer, and duly justified Marine Protected Areas, with work programs previously defined in consensus and with budgets that ensure its optimal functioning.

In this sense, the president of the SNI Fisheries and Aquaculture Committee, Alfonso Miranda Eyzaguirre, highlighted the commitment to move forward and culminate with a process of almost two decades aimed at reinforcing the Law of the Sea, acting in the gaps that had not been addressed. in the original agreement.

“For the Committee, this treaty has a fundamental role in the protection and sustainable use of high seas marine areas, since it takes advantage of the success of the Regional Organizations for Fisheries Management (RFMOs)”, he affirmed. In this regard, Miranda Eyzaguirre explained that the most notable aspect of the BBNJ agreement has to do with the clarification and respect of the powers of the current international instruments that regulate fishing and RFMOs, with regard to fisheries management and environmental protection. environment in their areas of competence, which comes to recognize the role of these fisheries management bodies through the management tools they apply.

"In this way, this new agreement does not interfere with the scope and mandate of the RFMOs and will serve to regulate other activities and protect vulnerable areas," he pointed out.

It should be remembered that the RFMOs have scientific and control competencies, which allow them to make the best decisions for the area of their competence, but also the participation of the interested parties, which to date has generated the good results obtained.

Miranda Eyzaguirre pointed out that fishing is one of the most regulated activities on the high seas and allows us to realize, based on examples, that there are fisheries and ecosystems that can be well managed and protected.

"Examples of this are organizations such as the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (CIAT), which has been in existence for 74 years and maintains the eastern Pacific tuna biomass in good condition, as well as the South Pacific RFMO, which has favored the health of the biomass of the horse mackerel and has already begun to take measures that favor the sustainability of the giant squid or squid in the same region", concluded the head of the Fisheries and Aquaculture Committee of the S.N.I.
