10 August 2012

CHILE - The Chamber of the Senate have agreed to vote in the next regular meeting on the project that defines the dicarding of aquatic species and establishes control measures and sanctions for those who engage in this practice in fishing operations.

Senator Horvath explained that: "This is a project in its third stage of consideration and the Joint Commission want a law regulating the disposal and a decrease in discards.

Scientific observers on board boats and in industrial buildings will also be established. These will ensure registration of cameras and provide evidence of the species being caught.
