The Federal Fisheries Council (CFP) has ordered the cessation of squid (Illex argentinus) fishing north of latitude 44° south, starting at 8:00 am on Monday, June 19.

The adopted decision considered the recommendation made by National Institute of Fisheries Research and Development (INIDEP) scientists, who advised that this subpopulation should not be continued being caught for the rest of the season.

INIDEP's technical report on the situation of the squid fishery as of June 13 indicates that the composition of the catches since mid-May has corresponded exclusively to the spring spawning stock (SDP), consisting of small mostly immature specimens. And to this what is added is the abrupt decline in the stock abundance, reflected in the catches and commercial yields of the last weeks.

Business chamber representatives had suggested that squid fishing north of the 44° parallel should be suspended for only 30 days and that trawler vessels catches must be monitored and restricted.

Some shipowners argue that a month should be waited for the specimens of the summer spawning stock (SDV) to develop and reach a commercial size. They also believe it is possible to make a further launch of the southern specimens by the end of July, Pescare reported.

Some 14 jiggers are operating in the affected area, with low yields regarding squid abundance and size (predominance of double and triple S sizes).

The CFP had already closed the shipments to operate south of 44° last June 5 due to the decline in catches.
