The Undersecretariat of Fisheries and Aquaculture (SUBPESCA) rules out the information released by international organizations on the possible adoption of Chilean flag by the illegal fishing boat known as Zemour 1 and Songhua, whose current name would be Pescacisne 1 or Pescacisne 2.

Likewise, SUBPESCA informed that it instructed the General Direction of the Maritime Territory and Merchant Marine (DIRECTAMAR) to reject any application of flag to this ship.

The vessel is listed on the Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) vessels belonging to the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). Therefore, Chile must fulfill its commitments and duties that as a Member in compliance with conservation and management measures, including refusing to grant flag to vessels that have carried out IUU fishing.

"Chile is a responsible fishing country, which is struggling against IUU fishing, within the framework of an international policy developed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which strengthens international organizations that have the authority to ensure conservation and management of fisheries or marine resources, such as the CCAMLR," said Pablo Berazaluce, Undersecretary of Fisheries and Aquaculture.
