The Spanish Confederation of Fisheries (CEPESCA) has expanded its international dimension after the integration of three new associations, two of which operate as international companies with vessels having a foreign flag.

This initiative of internationalization of the Spanish fishing association was rated as very positive by the Secretary General of Fisheries of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Food and the Environment, Alberto López-Asenjo.

With the new additions announced, CEPESCA already represents 41 associations of shipowners and more than one thousand vessels, thus consolidating its position as the largest fishing association in the EU.

To CEPESCA, this decision is a logical step, as it is a result of the collaboration and cooperation of the Spanish fisheries sector with the coastal countries in which it works, and in which it makes important investments that translate into sustainable and responsible development for those areas, the establishment of local populations and the improvement of ocean governance on a global scale.

On the other hand, it emphasizes that this openness abroad is an approach and a clear representation of the strategic importance of the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreements (SFPA) maintained by the European Union with third countries as well as the Agreements with those with which there is no Community agreement.

"To conceive the sector from a local point of view is a mistake, since we have been, are and will be leading the development of an economic activity, fishing, at global level", explained Javier Garat, CEPESCA Secretary General.

"What happens in any sea and ocean in the world affects us and has consequences. Not being in the front line, not only defending the interests of our sector, but also sustainability and good practices in the seas implies consciously staying out of the game," he added.

The new associations integrated in CEPESCA are ANASCO (National Association of Shipowners of International Joint Societies), AGAC (Association of Large Tuna Freezers) and Dakartuna (Association of Tuna Tuna Boats established in Dakar - Senegal).

ANASCO represents 71 freezer and fresh product trawlers, shrimp boats, longliners and freezer jiggers. Of this total, 32 are from Mozambique, 18 from Argentina, 17 from Namibia, 3 from Uruguay and 1 from South Africa.

For its part, AGAC integrates 32 freezer purse seine vessels, of which 15 operate in the Atlantic: 5 with the flag of Curacao, 4 of El Salvador, 3 Panamanians, 2 Guatemalans and 1 of Belize.

With respect to Dakartuna, this organization groups seven pole-line vessels that catch tropical tuna in the waters of Senegal, mainly.
