The catch quota system implemented by the Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (Sagarpa) has already resulted in 14 commercial fisheries recording production successes.

The head of the National Commission of Aquaculture and Fisheries (Conapesca), Mario Aguilar Sanchez, said some of those resources are abalone, croaker, tuna, clam and snail, among others.

"During the first 10 months of work of this federal Administration we have successfully implemented general quotas for the octopus in the Gulf of Mexico; of bluefin tuna in the Pacific Ocean; croaker in the Upper Gulf of California; and sea cucumber in Yucatan; besides specific quotas per vessel in the latter two species as well as more than 10 clams and snails," he said.

Aguilar Sanchez clarified that this scheme can not be implemented to all fishery resources or in all geographic areas.

And he indicated that in the context of the set fisheries management, mechanisms to change from the permit system to one of concessions for some species are also designed.

Conapesca expects to ensure the provision of greater incentives for sustainability and care of resources by fishermen, added the head of this federal agency.

The catch quota system "is the basis of sustainability and the fisheries policy axis of the president Enrique Peña Nieto, which was integrated based on an analysis of the situation of the sector at the beginning of this administration," he stressed.

Besides, Conapesca head highlighted that the catch quota system implementation was successfully beginning to be implemented in the Yucatan peninsula for commercial fishing of the sea cucumber.

Finally, he noted that the design process and the allocation of catch quotas will be attended by state authorities and also the fish producers and their organizations.
