Business Development and Services Director Catherine Silva Donayre told Penguin News that it has been an incredible quarter for the capital investment program with more than 26 projects and programs underway.
The program that currently has a budget of £ 110.5 million to be executed in the next five years, and is committed to the delivery of a range of projects from building maintenance to the construction of the new port, the new power plant and finalization Tussac House. These last three are the largest, and all in recent months have met the goals proposed in the schedule.
In April 2020, a contract was signed with BAM Nuttall for the design and construction of the new port, and while a pause was agreed as the coronavirus dominated efforts both in the Falklands and overseas, work resumed in September. A team from BAM Nuttall came to the Islands to conduct, for two weeks, a detailed exercise of the development of the work, with all sectors of the industry involved, which included a round of 58 meetings and presentations. A concept design should be ready for the first half of 2021.
The norwegian supreme legislature has decided that the coastal fleet shall be divided according to actual length, not legal length. This is in line with the government's proposal in the quota report. In today's system, it is the boat's legal length that determines what kind of group it belongs to.The goal is to make the quota system simpler and clearer
"This is an important simplification measure because we now get a division according to how long the boats actually are", says Minister of Fisheries and Seafood Odd Emil Ingebrigtsen.
The concept of legal length shows how complicated the quota system has become over the years. A boat that has a home length of ten meters can have an actual length of more than ten meters. The reason may be, for example, that the rights a fisherman has "hang" with from the fisherman's old vessel, and that he or she has now got a new vessel that is shorter or longer.
How the change will be implemented is now sent out for consultation.
The Chamber (lower house) approved, by 81 votes in favor, 46 against and twelve abstentions, the bill that declares the current regulation that came to reform the General Law of Fisheries and Aquaculture, contained in Law 18,892 and its amendments, to be insolvently void.
The proposal, which was returned to commissions upon being the object of indications, specifically challenges Law 20.657, which modifies the aforementioned legal body in the field of the sustainability of hydrobiological resources, access to industrial and artisanal fishing activity and regulations for the investigation and inspection.
The text details that, during the processing of the aforementioned Law 20,657, between the years 2011 and 2013, different sectors and institutions of civil society, artisanal fishing and indigenous communities questioned its content and stated that it violated the national interest, security food and the rights of indigenous peoples.

Seafood leaders in Canada have this week welcomed the signing of a temporary free trade deal with the UK.
The agreement means there will be no tariffs on farmed or wild caught fish exported to Britain next year.
Tariffs on Canadian seafood to the European Union were abolished earlier this year under the Canada-Europe Trade Agreement (CETA).
Paul Lansbergen, president of the Fisheries Council of Canada, said: “It cements the access that we’ve currently enjoyed under CETA. The UK is our fifth largest single country export destination, so it is important for our sector and we’re pleased that this transitional deal was reached.”
