The Chilean rock crab fishery went into pre-assessment in mid 2016. Pre-assessment went well for this fishery with the exception of not having enough historical data on bycatch. The pre-assessment will now continue in order for the pre-assessment team to collect additional data on the bycatch. The artisanal fishermen set and haul single pot lines at relatively shallow depths which allows bycatch to be released back into the ocean. The collection of data should go relatively quick and we hope to have the fishery in full MSC assessment soon.
