11 Jul, 2023

The National Institute for Fisheries Research and Development (INIDEP – Argentina) presented a report to the Federal Fisheries Council that analyzes the current situation of the fishery. It presents the evolution of total catches and other indicators from year 2000 to the present. The Maximum Allowable Catch (CMP) for the year 2022 was established at 3,700 tons, and the landing was 3,638 t. The scientific authors of the report consider that the Argentine toothfish fishery complies with the various regulatory measures established, and they recommended continuing with their application, since they have had a favorable impact on the health of the stock. However, they warn about the existence of unregulated catches carried out by foreign vessels outside the Argentine EEZ.
