In Chile, Fis.com reports that the Fisheries Management Fund (FAP) has CLP 120 million ($184,000USD) to support those interested in having access to the algae farming and restocking bonus. Until September 20, the Undersecretariat of Fisheries and Aquaculture (SUBPESCA) announced, artisanal fishermen from all over the country will be able to apply for the technical advisory program for restocking and farming macroalgae in the management and capture of benthic resource areas (AMERB).

The program is aimed at artisanal fisheries organizations with management areas at the national level, who, through it, will be able to apply for a single payment of CLP 1.5 million ($2,300USD) for hiring an advisor to carry out the procedures favoring the future development of algae restocking or farming activities in their management areas.

The objective of the initiative is to help artisanal fisheries organizations for:

  1. The elaboration or regulation of AMERB’s monitoring studies having the algae resource within their technical project;
  2. Obtaining permits for experimental aquaculture or aquaculture at AMERB, which consider the algae within their technical project; and

Obtaining restocking permits for this resource.
