The ships completed the hold in a few hours due to the presence of significant concentrations of the resource between the parallels 43°00' and 44°00' LS. The CAFACh, CAPIP and Artesanales chambers say that the season may not begin if the SUPA does not guarantee social peace.

Until this Wednesday, the shrimp prospecting planned in the waters of Chubut was carried out. On the first day of monitoring the resource in the so-called Northern Zone, delimited between the parallels 43°00' LS and 44°00' LS, the yields were sustained and the participating vessels were able to complete in a few hours and return to Rawson port.

The information that comes from the boats themselves indicates that in the surveyed area they found very good brands of shrimp, and the data is consistent with respect to the fact that the seafood obtained is mainly L2 and L1, commercially optimal sizes.

The other important factor is that the presence of hubbsi hake as a companion species was almost non-existent in the hauls. In addition, they report from the vessels that the shrimp from the North Zone is of very good quality in terms of its characteristics.

The survey concluded this Wednesday, and in light of the results of the first day, the resource would be in biologically acceptable conditions to advance the formal opening of the fishery in Chubut waters.

There are commercial-size shrimp, without hake bycatch, so there are parameters to start the season, but for reasons unrelated to biology, its start is once again in doubt.

Warning from business chambers

Through a statement, the Yellow Fleet Chamber of Chubut announced "If the SUPA does not guarantee social peace, we will not start the shrimp season." Following the statements of the head of the stevedoring union, Alexis “Gallo” Gutiérrez, reversing what was agreed, different representatives of the sector called for the reasonableness of the union to start the shrimp season.

Gustavo González, from CAFACH, said that “the harvest will not begin until SUPA guarantees that it contributes to social peace. They erase with their elbow what they wrote with their hand, they go back and jeopardize the start of the season. If the conditions are not guaranteed, we are not going to go fishing, we appeal to their reasonableness.”

“They put the season in danger”

At the same time, Gonzalo Vega, representative of the artisanal fleet, expressed himself, who also declared that “we need to work, but not under these conditions, without guaranteeing what had already been signed with the SUPA just a few days ago to start the harvest. "They pose a scenario that endangers the season, a situation that costs thousands of families dearly."

For his part, Agustín de la Fuente of the CAPIP, also expressed himself in harmony with the other chambers: “we cannot work without predictability, if there are no clear rules the harvest cannot begin, for this we signed an agreement that guaranteed “operability, with the commitment to bring the positions of all parties closer together.”
