Combating illegal fisheries become Spain’s priority

The head of the General Fisheries Secretariat of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment (MAGRAMA), Carlos Dominguez, said that "to the Government of Spain to ensure fishery resource sustainability and to effectively combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing are two non-negotiable priorities." This declaration took place after  the signature of a letter of intent with the Spanish Fisheries Confederation (CEPESCA) in order to increase transparency, improve monitoring and control over the activities of the fishing fleet registered in third countries.
This protocol "represents a turning point in creating a transparent relationship between the industry and the Administration in the control area and the struggle against illegal fishing," said Dominguez.
This agreement simplifies the analysis of risks of imported products by these ships of Spanish interest, who voluntarily agree to offer to the Secretariat information on licenses, newspapers, landing declarations and satellite positions.
The official also stressed that Spain is the only EU country that has implemented a private license verification procedure.
