Fishing Development Institut , IFOP was created in 1964 by Production Promotion Corporation, CORFO, and National Fisheries Society, through an international technical assistance project in fisheries matters between Chilean Government, United Nations Program for Development, UNDP, and United Nations Organization for Agriculture, FAO.

Fisheries Development Institute (IFOP) strategic role is based on the ability to generate, develop and transfer useful knowledge, which allows our country to position itself, competitively and sustainably, in the aquaculture and fishing sector, especially due to its research of high public value.

Luis Parot Donoso Executive Director of IFOP explained “IFOP develops comprehensive consultancies for decision-making in Fisheries and Aquaculture and research projects on status and evaluation of sustainable exploitation strategies, estimation of total allowable quotas of resources of commercial interest, evaluation and monitoring of benthic resource management areas, hydrobiological health programs, environment, restocking and crops and an aquaculture and fisheries knowledge node with emphasis on digital preservation, access and visibility of knowledge.

Thanks to IFOP’s work, the State is offered with necessary information to manage and regulate resources capture, to establish an integrated management of fisheries, deploy a management model and technical assistance, develop sustainable aquaculture and fishing.

We are present from Arica to Puerto Williams, we have 10 regional headquarters and our scientific observers are in practically all the coves and ports of the country ”.
