Costa Rican Fisheries and Aquaculture Institute (Incopesca) has decided to limit permits for tuna fishing this year, as an interim measure while implementing the new model that will govern this activity.

The Costa Rican Government announced that the model for tuna fishing is being reformulated in order to achieve a balanced scheme between environmental conservation, the competitiveness of the fishing sector and the use of national resources in a sustainable and fair manner. To this end, an Executive Decree will be drawn up. While this process takes shape, Incopesca authorities decided to implement limitations to the permits for tuna fishing.

The adopted decision establishes that this year tuna fishing permits will be granted in the exclusive economic zone of the country (EEZ) to foreign flagged vessels that demonstrate that they have delivered all of their catches to national processing industries, and permits will only be granted to these boats until a total of 5,847 metric tons is completed.

Incopesca technical director will have to keep an updated control of the catches in Costa Rican waters to verify that the authorized limit is not exceeded.

Once the defined limit is reached, the granting of licenses for this year will be suspended. Permits will be reactivated in January next year.

"At Incopesca we are making an effort to consolidate a model of responsible and balanced fishing, in which the balance of competitiveness of the fishing sector, monitoring of social responsibility with the communities that depend on these jobs, and sustainable environmental conservation are reached. We act to monitor these balances, while consolidating the new model that will establish them definitively," declared Gustavo Meneses, executive president of the Institute.
