The first report addresses what the FANs are, the history of these phenomena, and the situation in recent months in Chile and the world.
Microalgae are the base of the trophic chain in the oceans and are organisms that have always been present in aquatic environments.
EU countries may continue to restrict the access of fishing vessels from other Member States to their national territorial waters up to a distance of 12 nautical miles from the coast for a further ten years. Access may only be given to boats that were already fishing in the area. This will make it possible to reduce fishing pressure in specific areas and preserve local and small-scale economic activity in coastal areas. In the case of the outermost regions, restricted access can extend up to 100 nautical miles from the coast and only for ships registered in their ports.
