Responsible fishing training

The NATIONAL CHAMBER OF FISHERIES understand the training and development of capacities of the crew as a process aimed at improving skills related to the development of sustainable fishing management.

The content of the trainings is formulated in four modules that allow to provide technical concepts; as well as the main actions to be carried out on board, adding up 10 academic hours. For this reason, we have set ourselves the goal of training personnel on board 38 vessels of the partner companies and related to the SPS-FIP, setting the goal of training 170 crew members during 2021.

The training modules are as follows:

Marine ecosystem, sustainable fishing, and correct identification of target fish
