Other Media | EuropaAzul: Anabac demands solutions from the EU and Senegal for the Dakartuna pole-and-line fishers, unable to fish since January

Wednesday, June 01, 2022

The Basque freezer tuna fleet grouped in the National Association of Freezer Tuna Vessel Owners (Anabac) regrets that, still in May 2022, the fishing licenses that would allow its associated Dakartuna pole-and-line fleet to resume its activity have not yet been issued in the Senegalese fishing ground. In this sense, Anabac urges the European and Senegalese authorities to resolve their differences "so that the European fishing fleet, the Senegalese fishermen who work on board it and the Senegalese auxiliary industry stop being victims of this situation."

Due to the invasion of Ukraine, the European Union (EU) included in the fifth package of sanctions against Russia the prohibition of the entry of ships with the flag of that country in the ports of the Twenty-seven. However, the restrictions, in force since April 17, "do not affect fishing vessels or vessels or cargo ships with a gross tonnage of less than 500 GT."
