Hake Fishing Ban to Come into Force

4 September 2013, at 1:00am

CHILE - SERNAPESCA has informed that each year, between 1 and 30 September, a ban on hake fishing will be enforced between the regions of Coquimbo and Los Lagos.

The ban is to ensure the sustainability of the fishery.

Citizens are encouraged not to illegally extract this resource and to refraining from buying hake during September.

However, many traders are careful to stock up before the start of the ban, and then maintain a frozen stock.
