Squid 2023: averages similar to last year but fewer peaks of abundance

The fleet operates between parallels 45º and 47º in the South Management Unit. Until last week, 63 boats were in the fishing zone. Averages between 20 and 30 tons per day with peaks of 70 tons, but more sporadically than last year. Research campaign, in February.

The national jig fleet, made up of more than 60 vessels, animates the new squid harvest that began early on January 10 in the South Management Unit, south of 44º Sur. After two weeks of fishing, the feeling is that they are fishing at a level similar to last year, although the abundance of the summer spawning stock would be less than that recorded in the 2022 season.

Actually, the season was enabled on January 2 for those boats that were heading south of 49º Sur, a decision made by the Federal Fisheries Council last November. Those who accredited three days of fishing at that latitude could start fishing on January 7.

That incentive turned out to be a predictable fiasco. A single jigger operated in the area with zero results. The South Patagonian stock only appears in the area at the beginning of February, although not all the fleet will fish for it and many prefer to continue operating further north.

There are still no data on landings because many vessels have not finished filling their holds. According to the follow-up report available at INIDEP, there are 63 national jigging vessels fishing on the 45º South.

"We have had nights of 60 tons and others of 20, but the ones with the greatest abundance are less than last year," revealed Juan Redini, president of CAPA. Average levels for the entire fleet are around 20-30 tons per day. The size is mostly S with a portion of 25 to 30% SS.

Just next week, INIDEP will have a detailed report on these first weeks of the harvest and the number of foreign vessels operating in waters adjacent to the exclusive economic zone and also in the Malvinas will also be known.

Last week some boats migrated a few degrees further south, around 47º South in search of better yields, but what they found ran out in a couple of nights and they returned north, around 45º South where most of the fleet is concentrated. .

The fleet started the season blindly again, without having knowledge of the abundance of the resource, since INIDEP plans to start the evaluation campaign during the month of February. It remains to be seen with which research ship.

With the 2023 season, the squid fishery introduces new management measures, in regard to the reprocessing on land of part of the catch committed in the fishing permits of some vessels.

At the end of last year, Provision 1/22 came into force, which seeks to simplify the procedures and strengthen the control and inspection devices on that volume of raw material that is reprocessed on land.

The shipping companies must request through the Remote Procedures Platform (TAD) the preparation of the Certificate of Verification of shipment to the processing plant with an anticipation of no less than 48 hours from the end of the tide.

Another requirement resulting from the Provision for companies had to do with the registration of the plant where the squid is reprocessed. If they change it, they must inform it and the replacement must comply with all regulatory requirements. Companies have 72 hours in advance of the date of each processing to inform the day, time and establishment in which the reprocessing will take place.
