The federal Government plans to carry out a new national fishermen’s register, announced Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply Blairo Maggi at a meeting on the situation of the fishing sector held in the Legislative Assembly of the State of Santa Catarina.
"We are going to keep those who are really fishermen in the General Register of the fishing activity. Whoever is not so will be eliminated," said the minister.
With this measure, the Ministry of Agriculture (MAPA) wants to solve one of the main concerns of the production chain at the moment: the issuance of licenses for fishermen and fishing vessels.
During the meeting, the minister stressed the importance of the fishing activity for Brazilian agribusiness, as well as the need for investments to modernize and make it more competitive.
"Fishing is one of the sectors that can help Brazil achieve the goal of occupying at least 10 per cent of the world agricultural market over the next five years. That is why I am here, listening to the workers and entrepreneurs in order to to know the problems of the production chain so that MAPA can solve them, and facilitate the lives of fishermen and the fishing industry.
Minister Maggi also noted that the MAPA implemented the Agro + plan in August this year, aimed at reducing bureaucracy and simplifying rules and procedures.
"The red tape annoys those who produce, it is very harmful. We need to know what the problems are, where they are and see what the priorities are," he stressed.
Representatives of the state government, legislators and directors of the Federation of Industries of the State of Santa Catarina, of the Federation of Fishermen, of the Union of Shipowners and Fisheries Industries of Itajai and of the region as well as of the Trade Union of Workers of the Fishing Companies of Santa Catarina participated in the meeting with the fishing sector of Santa Catarina.
