The development of small pelagics in Dakhla, Morocco, is being strengthened with the launch of a project for the construction of a development unit within the industrial zone.

The Department of Maritime Fisheries continues the implementation of the development plan of small pelagic fisheries in the South Atlantic, by launching a call for expression of interest for the creation of a new unit of valorization on land associated with the exploitation of small pelagic resources in the South Atlantic, by a modern ship, landing in the port of Dakhla.

For the Department, the development plan of small pelagics is motivated by the importance of the Moroccan stock and aims to achieve several strategic objectives, mainly “the sustainable exploitation of the resource, the development of the catches made by the national fleet and the revitalization of the industry on land specialized in small pelagics by supplying the existing industries and developing new products.

At the end of the selection process, an agreement will be signed between the successful bidder and the Department of Maritime Fisheries. This agreement will specify the allocated quota, the conditions and modalities of exploitation of this quota as well as the rights and obligations of both parties.

As regards the dimensioning of the project for the creation of the recovery unit, the operator will benefit from an annual quota, in direct access, of small pelagics. This quota will have to be exclusively exploited by the beneficiary from the port of Dakhla and with the type of vessel authorized, as indicated in the roadmap that has been drawn up for the launch of the new recovery unit. The criteria that will be taken into account during the selection stage of the operator focus on the project that will have “the greatest impact on the local population especially in terms of job creation at sea and on land,” says the Department of Fisheries.

As a reminder, the project will be carried out within the industrial zone of the port of Dakhla according to the terms of occupation of the public port for a period of 20 years, with specifications that will be developed by the National Agency for Ports.
