Brazil will invest in the training of skilled labor in fishing on the high seas, where there are species of great commercial value, such as tuna. "The country currently reaches only 2% of the established quota of tuna fishing in the Atlantic. It is a highly valued fish in the world and we can become exporters,” said Minister of Fishing, Luiz Sergio.

Earlier this month, an agreement was signed between the National Service of Industrial Learning (SENAI) and a Japanese technical consultant to train 400 fishermen specialized in operating in high seas. Unlike fishing with nets used mostly in Brazil, the technique used far from shore uses a set of up to 3,000 hooks monitored by computers. The fish are caught about 300 meters down and frozen in the boats at 60° Celsius.
