The Spanish tuna fleet, represented by the Organization of Associate Producers of Large Tuna Freezers (Opagac), advocates extending Ocean Governance in the Pacific and Indian oceans.

The proposal was put forward by the delegates of Opagac who attended the 91st Special Meeting of the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC) and the sixth meeting of the Working Group in Cooperation with the South West Indian Ocean Fisheries Commission (SWIOFC).

At the first meeting, held in San Diego, California, the Spanish fleet defended the maintenance of the management measures that have been applied to date in the Eastern Pacific zone, involving a halt in activity of the entire siege fleet for 62 days a year.

It also defended the need to make some adjustment in the number of days of halt, due to the increase in the number of vessels fishing in the area, which has raised operating capacity by 10 per cent in the last three years, reaching 255,972 m3.

In addition, the Spanish fleet supported the adoption of more effective and contrasted control measures to protect stocks and the creation of closed areas for temporary fishing for yellowfin tuna, based on the good results already obtained with bigeye tuna.

The Spanish representatives also defended a comprehensive control of the location of vessels - which should transmit their position to the IATTC through VMS systems - and the adoption of Catch Control Regulations that ensure and prevent the sustainable exploitation margins of the populations.

Regarding fishing in the Indian Ocean, the 12 countries participating in Working Group in Cooperation with the South West Indian Ocean Fisheries Commission (SWIOFC) intend to "achieve a non-binding agreement" to help them "develop mechanisms to be more efficient in the management of their resources at national and international level."

At the sixth meeting of the group, held in Zanzibar, Tanzania, Opagac advocated the coordination of activities at the regional level, such as port inspection programs and observers. The objective of this is to help harmonize standards for data collection and management, a process that could count on the economic support of the fishing sector.
