Southern blue whiting.
In the same period, there will also be a second bidding (reassignment of extraordinary fishing permits) of Chilean seabass (Patagonian toothfish) for the artisanal sector, also in accordance with the law.
The aforementioned is due to the fact that seven lots were not awarded due to the lack of bidders and consequently, they were later declared as deserts, which led to a new auction.
In this specific process, only artisanal shipowners inscribed in the Artisanal Fishing Register (RPA) of Chilean seabass and the fishermen registered in the RPA of the Regions of Aysén and Magallanes, may participate.
