The Minister of Agriculture, Livestock, Aquaculture and Fisheries, Staynley Vera Prieto, signed an agreement prohibiting the construction, expansion and import of new artisanal and industrial fishing vessels. The aim pursued by the Government is to ensure the conservation and rational exploitation of fisheries.

The Ministerial Accord 405 establishes a National Register of Ships, which is a tool that seeks to prevent the growth of fishing efforts caused by the incorporation of fishing vessels built in the country.

According to the Director General of Fisheries, Douglas Burgos Campusano, the Undersecretariat of Fisheries Resources (SRP) will be the agency responsible for conducting the national register of fishing vessels, based on the data in the forms to be completed by the shipowners.

All fishing boats will have to enroll, indicating their naval registration number, port of registry and fishing permit.

The form shall contain the name of the owner, registration number, the gear used for fishing and the features of the ship, among other issues.

Then, all these data will be incorporated into the National Register of Ships.

The SRP said that the representatives of the boats will have a period of 90 days to send the completed form with the required information to the entity.

In addition, the Secretariat clarified that as of 1 April, 2012 the issuance of fishing permits is banned.

The Agreement also contemplates that the owners of artisanal ships that have an interest in improving housing conditions, the capture management and conservation without changing their status, can replace them by new ones.

Currently, there are 368 industrial vessels and 206 artisanal boats registered in the SRP.

Among the industrial vessels there are tuna, white fishing, sardine and shrimp vessels as well as longliners and purse seiners.
