The Secretariat of Agriculture and Rural Development (Sader), through the National Aquaculture and Fisheries Commission (Conapesca) and the National Institute of Fisheries and Aquaculture (Inapesca) and in coordination with producers, marketers, researchers, civil organizations and authorities from the governments of Baja California and Sonora, is working on the transformation of the hake fishery to develop it efficiently and sustainably, through a Fisheries Improvement Project (FIP).
 
FIPs are initiatives that, as in the case of hake, help fisheries meet sustainability standards, based on those established by international eco-certifiers, such as the Marine Stewardship Council.

In the case of hake from the Gulf of California, the fishery is in a good moment to start the process, since it has a healthy population and the support from public and private institutions to improve its management.
 
In this regard, the Hake FIP Working Group agreed on specific actions to help the fishery improve its practices and quality, in order to compete on equal terms with other countries in the international market.

Likewise, the Hake FIP seeks to inform Mexican consumers that hake from the Gulf of California is a white fish of good quality, with high protein value and a mild flavor, the capture of which is made by an industry responsible for the environment.
 
To publicize the measures that the fishery will take to improve its quality and sustainability, the Working Group will register hake in the fisheryprogress.org platform in November of this year, a site that is consulted by national and international marketers seeking sustainable products or in the process of improving their practices, to offer it to an increasingly aware market about responsible consumption.

Last June, the capture of hake from the North Pacific was approved as a new fishery, and 80 permits were initially granted for its sustainable production in the states of Baja California, Sonora and Sinaloa.
 
The Subcommittee on Responsible Fisheries, which is part of the National Consultative Committee for Agrifood Standardization (CCNNA) of the Sader, unanimously approved to include in the Official Mexican Fisheries and Aquaculture Standards the hake subtraction (Merluccius productus) from the North Pacific, whose fishery is considered new.
