On Friday, April 24th, at IFOP Valparaíso, a day of conversation was held between the Executive Director of IFOP, Gonzalo Pereira, and the leaders of the institution’s unions, on the occasion they worked and discussed the role of IFOP in the new Fishing Law.
Regarding the activity, Pereira expressed “I am very satisfied with this meeting, it was a good instance to exchange ideas regarding what we think a new Fisheries Law should have or contain, mainly in our sphere, which is referred to the investigation for the fishing and aquaculture and also in the institutional aspects that concern us as an institution in charge of the research. It brought me several good ideas that have been raised by the unions.”
From IFOP unions they explained “this instance meant an opportunity to share our ideas with the executive management and talk about relevant issues in the face of this great challenge that is the new Fisheries Law. Among the topics discussed, it was a pleasure to be able to agree on several work lines , highlighting the need for a baseline budget for our institute, a restructuring in the positioning of our scientific observers and the development of fishing research. We hope that this work can have a place in the new Fisheries Law project to continue strengthening our work to advise on the management and sustainability of our marine resources”.
