Sustainable fishing in the world under discussion in Palma


The Palau de Congressos de Palma hosted in November the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT), where attendees from more than 50 countries have come together to discuss the future of bluefin.

With this large event, the Congress Center had the opportunity to demonstrate, once again, its versatility, having transformed the EXPO room into a wide U-shaped setup, with natural light and stunning views of the bay, the best backdrop for an event where the sea is the protagonist.

In addition, the safety and quality of the destination, together with the excellent accommodation offer of the city, have been essential for the event organizer to have chosen the city of Palma for such an important meeting.

The Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food of the Spanish Government, Luis Planas, and the president of the Balearic Government, Francina Armengol, opened the congress highlighting the Spanish leadership in the fishing industry and the need to bet on sustainable and responsible fishing .

This meeting aims to set the quotas for bluefin tuna fishing by 2020, as well as regulate overfishing of tunas and other species.
