Chile continues to monitor the Chinese fleet present in the Pacific. From the Satellite Monitoring Center of the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Service, the national director of Sernapesca Alicia Gallardo Lagno and the deputy director of Fisheries, Fernando Naranjo, have detected that the Chinese fishing fleet continues to operate in the Pacific Ocean, now near the Zone Exclusive Economic of Chile.
“According to the satellite surveillance report, during the last week some 40 vessels from the Asian fleet, which were at the height of Arequipa, moved south. Some entered our maritime territory, but maintain constant navigation speed towards the Strait of Magellan, thus ruling out a fishing operation, ”explains Sernapesca.

About 87 percent of the worldwide commercial catch of tuna is coming from stocks seen at healthy levels of abundance, although some regional stocks including Pacific bluefin are overfished, the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation says in a new status report.
Based on findings by regional fishery management organizations though October 2020, the summary by the foundation – a cooperative program involving scientists, the tuna industry, and the World Wildlife Fund – breaks down 10 percent of the world catch coming from overfished stocks and 3 percent from stocks “at an intermediate level of abundance.”
The report summary states 87 percent of the total catch comes from healthy stocks in terms of abundance. This is due to the fact that skipjack stocks contribute more than half of the global catch of tunas, and they are all in a healthy situation.
