Fishing professionals warn against exploiting the solidarity economy to plunder fishing wealth

The Coalition for the Preservation of Fisheries warned against the use of mechanisms linked to the solidarity economy to circumvent the laws of access to fishing.
No person can, according to the same coalition, “rely on exceptions or cases not provided for or authorized by law to propose the granting of licenses to register what has been built illegally.”

The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries recently decided to “postpone octopus fishing in light of reports from the National Institute for Research in Marine Fisheries that warn about the dangerous situation of fishing in the south of Sidi El Ghazi.”
Measures have also been taken by the central administration of the Ministries of Agriculture and Maritime Fisheries and the Interior to combat indiscriminate fishing, including monitoring, auditing and counting vessels licensed to fish.
These measures were considered by the Coalition for the Preservation of Fisheries as a “cornerstone” in the process of combating illegal fishing, demanding strict compliance with the law against violators of national fishing.
The aforementioned measures, according to the same professional source, reinforce “the Aleutis scheme, which is based on framing the fishing effort through specialized scientific monitoring and legal mechanisms that clarify the rules that must be respected by all.”
The same measures are also of “vital importance and require precision and a comprehensive survey to correct the situation and return the fishing effort to its balanced standards and compatible with the legal norms that guarantee the rights of all.”
