Legislators requested details of the permits granted by the fishing vessel from January 1, 2022 to date as a result of the case of the TAI-AN vessel, which in May of this year would have been prosecuted for bringing among the total cargo of 1,400 tons of surimi from hoki and southern blue whiting, about 9 tonnes of HGT of juvenile toothfish in packages ready for export.
USHUAIA.- On August 4, the Green Party bloc submitted to the Legislature a request for information from the Executive in relation to the fishing companies that operate from the port of Ushuaia and in the provincial jurisdiction after the case of a local company was implicated in the act of sanction that would have been carried out for bringing among the total cargo of 1400 tons of hoki and southern blue whiting surimi with some 9 tons of HGT of juvenile toothfish in packages ready for export.
“Through journalistic information, it is known of fishing vessels that have illegally fished species not authorized in provincial jurisdiction. If we take into account that these ships set sail and arrive at the port of the city of Ushuaia, it is very important to have information on the control mechanisms that the responsible authorities have, as well as whether all ships are duly inspected in their actions by provincial inspectors", expresses the draft resolution that bears the signature of the legislator Victoria Vuoto.
The parliamentarian highlights there that "this party bloc has repeatedly requested information directly from the ministerial authorities responsible for this extractive activity of natural resources in our province without having any response to the petitions."
The detail requested by the legislators includes the date of departure and arrival at the port of Ushuaia of each fishing vessel; area in which it intervened, detail of the tons and species granted by permit and those that were verified upon arrival at port. Inform if there were returns.
They also request the identification of the observers from the province that accompanied each fishing vessel and a copy of the reports presented by the observers.
Regarding the complaint known through the media involving the vessel TAI-AN, the legislators requested all the information delivered to the authorities by the fishing vessel regarding the fishing of toothfish; report of the on-board observer of the province; actions taken by the competent authority in this regard and if these types of events are recurring, report on previous cases.
The case
The journalistic information published by the specialized portal "Mar&Pesca" on May 18 reported that the 'surimero' (fishing vessel with surimi factory on board) vessel TAI-AN "accidentally" caught several tons of juvenile Patagonian toothfish.
“The vessel owned by the Chinese businessman Liu Zhijiang could be sued in the next few hours for bringing a total cargo of 1,400 t. of hoki and southern blue whiting surimi about 9 tons of HGT of juvenile toothfish in packages ready for export” the note said.
"The entry of the vessel occurred last week and the unloading would have been delayed by the claims of the head of Prodesur to enter the fishing dollar," the news indicated.

"We went out to the surimi and came back with chocolates that we found by chance," joked a maritime worker when consulted by Mar&Pesca. The sailor who requested anonymity for fear of reprisals maintained that the size of the toothfish caught had to do with the area where it was operating and that it was a deliberate maneuver.
“What we know is that there was a request from HGT and that is why these tons were brought in,” he commented. He also noted that due to the poor conditions in which some cabins are found, the inspectors do not want to board the ship. "It seems to me that the Ministry of Labor should do something, we have problems, I don't want to imagine the inspectors," he said.
