La flota ecuatoriana de Tunacosn se siente líder en la gestión y el uso de dispositivos agregadores de peces elaborados con materiales 100% de origen vegetal.

La flota de barcos atuneros de cerco de las 5 empresas fundadores de TUNACONS empiezan el 2022 cumpliendo uno de sus principales compromisos de inicios de año 2021 que fue reemplazar el 20% de los Dispositivos Agregadores de Peces (DAPs), también llamados ´plantados´ (que normalmente se elaboran de material sintético) por versiones eco-amigables, denominados «EcoFADs», elaborados de una fibra vegetal que se cultiva en Ecuador, llamada cáñamo de manila o abacá.

La pesquería de atún alrededor del mundo, usa los plantados (también llamados FADs por sus siglas en inglés) como una herramienta útil para su actividad. A pesar de la iniciativa en uso de materiales degradables que se ha levantado en las flotas de otros océanos, este compromiso formal de uso de EcoFADs en TUNACONS marca un hito que confirma el camino de la industria pesquera hacia prácticas mas sostenibles.


La investigación sobre materiales degradables de origen vegetal lleva ya cuatro años en desarrollo. El equipo técnico de TUNACONS ha realizado múltiples pruebas de resistencia de diversos materiales incluídas las conocidas cabuya y yute pero se concluyó, como se lo evidencia en los videos del canal de YouTube de la Fundación, que el abacá es el más resistente ante la alcalinidad del agua de mar.


Los próximos pasos del proceso, serán realizar un monitoreo de los ECOFADs sembrados para analizar su resistencia y niveles de captura, para luego continuar ampliando el despliegue de una mayor cantidad de este tipo de Plantados.

TUNACONS empezó como un proyecto sostenible, pero por su compromiso a largo plazo, este año se formó como Fundación. Con el liderazgo de Guillermo Morán Velasquez como Director, se espera alcanzar la primera certificación Marine Stewardship Council para la pesca responsable para el segundo trimestre de 2022.

La Fundación está conformada por 5 miembros plenos entre nacionales y extranjeros; Negocios Industriales Real S.A., Eurofish y Servigrup de Ecuador, Pesquera Jadran de Panamá y Trimarine de EEUU. También se unieron el año pasado 2 nuevos miembros adherentes que son Manacripex y Marbelize.

The Ecuadorian Tunacosn fleet feels itself to be a leader in the management and use of fish aggregating devices made with 100% plant-based materials.

The tuna purse seine fleet of the 5 founding companies of TUNACONS starts in 2022 fulfilling one of its main commitments from the beginning of the year 2021, which was to replace 20% of the Fish Aggregating Devices (FADs), also called ‘FADs’ (which are normally made of synthetic material) with eco-friendly versions, called “EcoFADs”, made from a vegetable fiber grown in Ecuador, called manila hemp or abaca.

The tuna fishery around the world uses FADs (also called FADs) as a useful tool for its activity. Despite the initiative in the use of degradable materials that has arisen in the fleets of other oceans, this formal commitment to the use of EcoFADs in TUNACONS marks a milestone that confirms the fishing industry’s path towards more sustainable practices.


Research on degradable plant-based materials has been underway for four years. The TUNACONS technical team has conducted multiple resistance tests on various materials, including the well-known cabuya and jute, but concluded, as evidenced in the videos on the Foundation’s YouTube channel, that abaca is the most resistant to the alkalinity of seawater.

The next steps in the process will be to monitor the ECOFADs deployed to analyze their resistance and capture levels, and then continue to expand the deployment of a greater number of this type of Planted plant.

TUNACONS began as a sustainable project, but because of its long-term commitment, this year it was formed as a Foundation. With the leadership of Guillermo Morán Velasquez as Director, it is expected to achieve the first Marine Stewardship Council certification for responsible fishing by the second quarter of 2022.

The Foundation is made up of 5 full members among nationals and foreigners; Negocios Industriales Real S.A., Eurofish and Servigrup from Ecuador, Pesquera Jadran from Panama and Trimarine from the USA. Two new adherent members joined last year, Manacripex and Marbelize.
