Responsible tuna fishing as a guarantee of sustainable future

Private Fishing Agreements

In the countries where the EU does not have a SFPA, and to ensure access of non-EU vessels to the EEZs of coastal countries, OPAGAC/AGAC established private fisheries agreements with their governments.

The Spanish government, as set out in the PTP, checks the authenticity of fishing licenses obtained privately and validates them through diplomatic channels.

The governments of the ships with foreign pavilions in the fleet receive copies of the licenses obtained and validated in accordance with national law.

Both ICCAT and CTOI request the parties to notify them when agreements or fishing permits exist to fish in their waters with vessels flagged elsewhere.
