ALGIERS-Coral fishing, which has been allowed again recently after 15 years of suspension, is expected to begin next spring, an official at the Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and Fishing told APS Wednesday.

Coral fishing, authorized by the new law on fisheries and aquaculture adopted in March by Parliament, "will begin in the spring, specifically between March and April 2016," the chief of staff in charge of Fisheries at the ministry, Kamel Negheli stressed on the sidelines of an information day dedicated to new legislative and regulatory provisions on coral exploitation.

The fishing season will be preceded by an auction process that will begin by early January to allow operators to submit tenders.

The governor proceeds, subsequently, to the bidders review. Those selected will participate in the auction to obtain operating concessions of this resource.

But according to Negheli, after 15 years of suspension, the year 2016 will be "much more an experimental year" for the exploitation of coral resource "in order to absorb the reality on the ground."

"We will closely follow the progress of the operation and adjust or specify, when necessary, certain aspects," he added.

Despite its closure in 2000 due to overfishing, coral fishing continues to this day to be poached.
