PEVASA took part in the meeting of the Best Practices Verification Committee meeting, held at the AZTI Centre in Sukarrieta on 24 October last. This committee was created by AZTI, at the request of the associations ANABAC and OPAGAC, for the purpose of verifying fulfilment of the best practices implemented by the fleets of the signatory entities. Together with the other participants in the meeting, scientists and members of the associations, PEVASA personnel exchanged their thoughts on the development of new techniques for release of sensitive species, roll-out of non-entangling FADs and the undertaking for mandatory embarkation of scientific observers aboard the tuna fishing fleet.
