Programa Nacional de Observadores Cientficos
by FundaciĆ³n Internacional de Pesca (FIPESCA) (Non-governmental organization (NGO))
En la pesca con red de cerco existen tres modalidades, la pesca sobre delfines, la pesca sobre brisas y la pesca sobre FAD.

En la pesca sobre delfines es fundamental evitar mortalidad a los delfines o heridas graves. Para esto los buques llevan observadores cientficos a bordo que verifican el cumplimiento de medidas orientadas a evitar esas mortalidades o heridas. Bilogos profesionales son capacitados para conocer de las medidas obligatorias para la proteccin de los delfines. Se realizan cursos todos los aos y se cuenta en la actualidad con 22 bilogos observadores que van a bordo de las naves de pesca de atn con red de cerco.
