The head of the Council of Marine Affairs of ​​Galicia, Rosa Quintana, in Vigo advocated for continuing working in the European Union (EU) to avoid non-caught remaining quotas by the Member States, as it was the case in the period 2008-2014.

In those years, more than one million tons were left unconsumed, according to the data that the Xunta gathered and that were made public by ARVI. This amount of species that was not caught would have an estimated economic value on the market of EUR 1.8 billion.

Quintana made the remarks Tuesday, as part of her speech at the breakfast-colloquium on the Galician fishing maritime sector, organized by the Entrepreneurship Circle of Vigo.

There she explained that the Xunta will continue to seek solid arguments with the sector to alleviate the negative effects that the principle of relative stability has on the Galician fleet. In this sense, she stressed the importance of carrying out "valid Galician good practices" in the fishing field as a key challenge that may open the door to review the principle of relative stability within the framework of the Brexit negotiation.

On this subject, the Minister recalled the establishment of a working group within the Galician Fisheries Council in order to assess each step that is taking place in the exit process of the United Kingdom from the EU. She also stressed that the Xunta works with the MarInnLeg institute, created in Vigo under the Blue Growth strategy, to get arguments in favour of the Galician fleet given the negotiations in Europe.

On the other hand, Quintana stressed the importance of the deep-sea and great deep-sea fleet of Galicia, which fulfills demanding environmental, socio-labour and economic standards, and emphasized its work in outer waters. In this area, she pointed out that the Xunta will encourage investments by Galician shipowners in third countries to improve their competitiveness.

In this way, she explained that they are looking for financial tools for the renewal of the fleet and the reinforcement of contacts with the countries in which the Galician fleet is based. Thus, she said, the regional government will continue with contacts established with Cape Verde, Namibia and Peru, among other countries.

In this task, she said that it is necessary to make the EU aware of the importance of the presence of fishing companies in third countries and that "the concept of foreign policy in fisheries has to change to adapt it to the current times."

"It is also necessary," she added, "that the EU accept that legal support and support for the renewal of the assets of joint ventures is positive for its economy and that of the countries receiving the investment."
