Chinese fishing vessels have only one percent coverage of scientific observer fishing trips, compared to 100 percent for other fisheries.
The X Meeting of the Scientific Committee of the South Pacific Regional Fisheries Management Organization, RFMO-PS, recently held in the city of Seoul, South Korea, served to discuss the current panorama of giant squid or giant squid, which is the main resource artisanal fisheries and for human consumption in Peru.
In this regard, the president of the Committee for the Sustainable Management of the Giant Squid in the South Pacific (CALAMASUR), Alfonso Miranda Eyzaguirre reported that important aspects were discussed regarding genetics, percentage of coverage of scientific observers on board, data collection format to implement assessment models and a proposal for regional models for stock assessment for this species.
On this point, he revealed that, despite some progress in this field, the Chinese delegation was tenaciously opposed and showed reluctance to increase sampling coverage, despite the fact that it now only has 1% of the coverage of fishing trips with a scientific observer. , compared to 100% for other fisheries.

“The committee proposed to monitor fishing yields and reduce fishing effort as precautionary management rules in this fishery and to continue advancing towards the generation of a regional model that allows advancing towards sustainable and science-based management for jumbo flying squid in the SPRFMO".
In this sense, the president of the RFMO, James Ianelli, congratulated CALAMASUR for the presentation of an innovative procedure for the evaluation of the regional stock of giant squid (dosidicus gigas) that was presented and debated at the fishing event.
Miranda Eyzaguirre, in turn, expressed that the proposed evaluation is the only possible way for the largest squid fishery in the world to establish a science-based management that ensures its sustainable use.
"In this context, the best contribution of the academy to sustainable management is not only to put all its vast experience and knowledge, but also to meet the challenges in a timely manner," he added.
On the other hand, he hoped that the coastal countries Peru, Ecuador and Chile, in whose adjacent seas more than 90% of the fishing managed by this organization is fished, incorporate Spanish as an official language, as well as English, which should be raised at the next Commission meeting in February 2023.
The official Peruvian delegation was made up of IMARPE scientists Erich Díaz Acuña, Ana Alegre Norza Sior and Enrique Ramos Vásquez.
