Governor of Quintana Roo, Roberto Borge Angulo announced that with the support of President Enrique Peña Nieto and the National Institute of Entrepreneurship (Inadem) President Enrique Jacob Rocha, a total of 11.5 million pesos (US$711,600) was approved to fund the Fresh Kay initiative that will expand competitiveness in 26 fishing cooperatives and directly impact 3,000 maritime workers statewide.
The initiative will generate low impact extraction to ensure the stability of marine species, in addition to the establishment of eco-productive zones (areas of sustainable extraction), said the governor.
“The Fresh Kay initiative aims to identify the strengths of the fishing sector, establish strategies to remedy the gaps that create low profits for fishing families and group the sector for optimal market trade with the United States, Canada and Japan,” he said.
The central point is to leave behind the bureaucratic procedures that inhibit access to federal resources and with the initiative, fishermen are trained how to access Inadem’s different calls, he said.
“In Chiquilá (Lázaro Cárdenas municipality) the salvage of a collection center is being prepared to generate an integrative scale to ensure the supply of marine products intended to be marketed locally, nationally, and internationally,” the governor concluded.
