AN OFFICIAL institution has deemed the fishing practice in Cartagena not so environmentally friendly. The city only complies with 51 per cent of the regulations included in the code for responsible fishing designed by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO).
The information was published in a report carried out by the Cartagena University (UPCT), which says that the city would have to comply with at least 70 per cent of regulations for its fishing profession to be considered ‘responsible.’
“We have also detected that 25 per cent of all species are at risk of collapsing and 30 per cent are completely overexploited,” said PhD student Simon Hernandez.
