The head of the Ministry of Environment and Rural and Marine Affairs (MARM), Rosa Aguilar, said the central government gives "full support" to the processing, transforming and marketing industry of fishery and aquaculture products.

The minister said that "in these difficult times of global crisis," the fishing-aquaculture industry is "a clear example of the fact that the globalization and internationalization phenomenon can offer new options for the future."

In addition, Aguilar considered it essential "to follow the path of sustainable development, of food quality and security to stabilize markets and ensure reasonable prices."

She also found it necessary to increase business competitiveness "to open new prospects and perspectives to our excellent productions"

To the minister, the market supply with fishing and aquaculture resources must be guaranteed "by offering a sustainable management of marine resources."

Besides, she stressed that traceability is "a guarantee of the source and route of fisheries products throughout the food chain."

Aguilar reiterated that the fishery products traded in the Community market must meet the sanitary requirements of the European bloc market.

In this regard, she said that Spain is working by "claiming and demanding reciprocity as a key issue for competitiveness."

While debating the new Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), the Minister stressed that the Spanish Government and MARM defend "the whole sector" with the autonomous communities.

Meanwhile, the central government and the Xunta de Galicia denied the fact that Spain grants public subsidies to a small network of Spanish fishing companies and operators linked to illegal fishing activities in response to new allegations of Greenpeace.

"We follow the law strictly when granting aids, both from the European Fisheries Fund (EFF) and the Galician grant law that have existed since 2007," assured the Minister of Marine Affairs of Galicia, Rosa Quintana.

The general secretary of Marine Affairs, Alicia Villauriz, explained that the Executive grants fishing aids "based on thorough and legal issues", La Opinión reported.
