19/04/2012 Lanzarote (KMC) - In response to a number of cases of ciguatera poisoning, the Cabildo de Lanzarote has issued a press release on the protocol for controlling ciguatoxin.

 

According to the Ministry of Health of the Canary Islands, the Ciguatera poisoning was caused by the illegal poaching of fish which has not undergone the necessary health protocols. As a result, fishermen must release the following species back into the sea when they have not undergone proper health controls and labelling and when they exceed the following weights:

 

 

 

Amberjack (Medregal) – 15kg

 

Peto – 30kg

 

Pejerrey – 12kg

 

Abade – 12kg

 

Mero – 29kg

 

Picudo – 150kg

 

Sierra – 10kg

 

Swordfish – 150kg

 

Anglers and sports fishermen must also follow this instruction and release the fish back into the sea immediately.

 

The press release also reports that from March this year, the local Government Fisheries began working with the marine division of the Guardia Civil, in order to strengthen fish inspection on the island. These inspections and information campaigns were carried out at random, in restaurants and at coastal fishing docks. The result so far has been positive, with only one case of illegal poaching being discovered in respect of irregularities between the characteristics of the products and the marketing used.
