Croatian fishers' guild advocates oily fish protection

The chairman of the guild of fishers within the Croatian Chamber of Crafts (HOK), said on Saturday that the guild supported measures aimed at protecting oily fish such as close seasons and restrictions regulating where oily fish can be caught.

The chairman Mato Oberan said at a gathering of fishers on the island of Pag that the guild demanded the amending of the tuna fishing rules.

The guild is in favour of fishing restriction off the island of Jabuka.

The guild urges amendments to legislation on the coastal belt.

According to figures presented at a recent convention on sustainable fisheries, some 24,00 tonnes of oily fish was caught in the first half of this year, which was similar to last year's H1.

Throughout 2015, about 70,000 tonnes of oily fish was caught in the Croatian part of the Adriatic Sea.
