New Management Plans Created to Ensure Sustainability and Availability of Seafood

20 August 2014

MEXICO - The Federal Government has launched 18 Fisheries Management Plans (PMP) for boosting the sustainability, conservation and availability of fish, molluscs and crustaceans of commercial interest in the main producing areas of the coasts of Mexico.

These actions also hope to improve the social and economic conditions of the inhabitants of the fishing communities in the coastal areas of the country.

With this measure, the SAGARPA also promotes the protection of species of commercial interest which are in high demand in the market.

The fishery management plans are tools to support national fisheries and constitute a set of actions aimed at developing fisheries in a balanced, comprehensive and sustainable manner, in accordance with the General Law on Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture.

Its development is based on the current knowledge of biological, fisheries, environmental, economic, cultural and social aspects that the National Fisheries Institute gathers and analyzes, with the participation of the producers themselves, federal, state and municipal authorities, and academia colleges and research centers.
