The National Institute of Fisheries Research and Development (INIDEP) awarded certificates to 21 new Observer on board graduates.

The course was conducted to train individuals to work on board commercial fishing vessels, gathering basic biological, fishery and environmental information; identifying fishing gear used, the use of selective devices, their operation and efficiency; recognizing the characteristics of fishing vessels and on-board processing technologies aimed at verifying and updating existing information on fleet activities and producing reports in accordance with current regulations.

This training, which will increase coverage in the commercial fleet, represents a step toward a more responsible and sustainable fishing industry.
