Secretary General of Marine Affairs of Xunta de Galicia Juan Maneiro reported that mackerel landings of the local coastline fleet and the turnover increased compared to 2013, following the launch of the new management model in Northwest-Cantabrian waters.

According to the official, the landings increased by 230 per cent and the value grew by 220 per cent compared to last year.

In the 8th Fish and Shellfish Commission, Maneiro pointed out the sales of this pelagic resource in the Galician markets by the trawl, siege and small-scale gear fleet rose from EUR 1.9 million in 2013 to the EUR 6.1 million this year.

Meanwhile, landings increased from 2,200 tonnes to 7,300 tonnes of mackerel.

The authority also explained that the percentage that was unloaded in Galicia by the local fleet exceeded 65 per cent compared to what was landed in other autonomous regions, doubling the figure of 2013.

Even when the fishing season has not finished, Maneiro stressed that the trawler fleet increased its working season by 46 per cent; the smaller-scale and fixed vessels rose its own by 120 per cent; and purse seiners increased theirs by 175 per cent.

These data "re-state the benefits expected from this new management model, which include expanding fishing time, landings in our ports, a better organization of fishing activity and a more adequate trade," the Galician Government pointed out in a press release.

The new management model emerged from the work developed by the Working Group of the Northeast Cantabrian, consisting of industry representatives in various forms and autonomous regions, the General Fisheries Secretariat and delegates from the autonomous regional administrations.

Furthermore, Maneiro also mentioned the trip of a Galician delegation to Chile in early February 2014.

During the visit, the differences and synergies between the artisanal fishery and aquaculture sectors in both areas were analyzed and shared.

In addition, officials from both countries thoroughly analyzed the fishery and aquaculture legislation.

The Galician delegates visited the Laboratory of Marine Toxins of the Institute of Biomedical Sciences of the Medical School of the University of Chile, Chiloe Island.

Finally, in early April scientists of the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO) found an increase in mackerel stock in northwestern Spain, which now accounts for about 80 per cent of the biomass in this area in spring.

The biomass growth, which has been observed in recent years, turns mackerel into the "most characteristic one in spring in the northern Spanish coast," reported the agency EFE.
