Through the Secretariat of Aquaculture and Fisheries (SAP), the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Supplies (MAPA) has certified the first vessel to participate in the chain of fishery products for export to the European Union. The vessel Delfim, from Rio Grande do Sul, receives certification after meeting all the criteria established in Normative Instruction No. 57, of October 31, 2019.

“The implementation of this process is an important step by SAP/MAPA in meeting the recommendations of the European health authority for adapting the primary stage of the production chain to re-open exports of fishery products to this economic bloc”, highlights the Secretary.

Certification was also issued for the fishing vessel Yago F, from Santa Catarina, for meeting the criteria and requirements for good hygienic-sanitary practices on board provided for in the SAP-MAPA Ordinance No. 310, of December 24, 2020. Thus, the vessel can supply raw material for processing fishery products destined for the national and international market, except the European Union.
