During an inspection and surveillance operation carried out in the municipality of Celestún, Yucatán, more than 18,000 kilograms of eviscerated octupus were seized by local authorities. The product was captured during the period of temporary closure in the state of Yucatán.
Through a statement, the sub-delegate for fishing in the state, Felix Armando Luna Gomez, announced the assurance that took place in a warehouse in that municipality, the end of last week and the one described in the consignment report of the federal federal fisheries indicates that it is also a product caught with a size smaller than that allowed by NOM-008.
Luna Gómez pointed out that in this way Conapesca reaffirms its commitment to the fishing productive sector and society in general, in the fight against illegal fishing, advocating that the exploitation of marine resources should be carried out in a responsible and sustainable manner.
In turn, the Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (Sagarpa) reported that the octopus ban in Yucatan began on December 16, 2017, and it is effective until July 2018.
