Ley Pesca: Cámara de diputados posterga votación

La iniciativa aprobada el año 2012 se realizó en medio de comprobados actos de cohechos y coimas. La Nueva Mayoría impulsa un proyecto que busca su derogación, sin embargo, las irregularidades se remontan al gobierno de Ricardo Lagos.

La legitimidad de Ley Longueira fue cuestionada, tras revelarse públicamente los vínculos de la empresa pesquera Corpesca con el senador de la UDI, Jaime Orpis, y a la ex diputada Marta Isasi.

Ante ello, se desarrolló una iniciativa que buscaba aprobar su nulidad, no su derogación, ya que esto último obligaría a indemnizar a las empresas beneficiadas con la concesión de derechos presentes y futuros.

La iniciativa promulgada el 9 de febrero de 2013 por el gobierno de Sebastián Piñera, esconde una serie de negociaciones que han beneficiado históricamente a las grandes empresas pesqueras. De acuerdo a la Confederación Nacional de Pescadores Artesanales de Chile, la Ley de Pesca “dejó al 100 por ciento de los pescadores no dueños de embarcaciones sin derecho a pescar”.

Y es que el proyecto permitió la entrega “del mar  a perpetuidad a un cartel de siete familias”. Se trata de los grupos empresariales Angelini, Lecaros, Yaconi –Santa Cruz, Sarquis, Stengel, Fernández e Izquierdo. El negocio ha sido tan beneficioso que permitido la fusión con grandes conglomerados transnacionales como  Orizon, Blumar, Camanchaca Pesca Sur y Mar Food.

Concertación y derecha junto a los empresarios pesqueros

Los antecedentes de la cuestionada ley se remontan al mandato de Ricardo Lagos, gobierno que aprobó la Ley de Límites Máximos de Captura por Armador. Esta iniciativa estableció un sistema de cuotas de pesca, que benefició a las siete familias mencionadas en un 92 por ciento. Dicha ley también se logró tras un intenso lobby entre los empresarios pesqueros y los parlamentarios, demostrando que es una forma de operar de la política chilena que incluye tanto a la derecha como los gobiernos anteriores.

Durante estos diez años, los industriales han concentrado ganancias por 9 mil millones de dólares, pero nunca han pagado por la asignación de las cuotas. Si bien Chile figura entre los diez países con mayores descargas pesqueras del mundo, el sector solo aporta un 0,4 por ciento del PIB del país.

La Cámara de Diputados decidió postergar hasta la próxima semana la discusión. De aprobarse su derogación, se podría impedir la entrega por veinte años (renovables) de la concesión de derechos de explotación a industriales pesqueros sobre más de 4 mil kilómetros de costa nacional.

  1. Hola, me gusta mucho sus ideas, soy de un campo en la frontera sur de la Republica Dominicana. Una zona muy pobre, en donde esta idea teinrda un uso exelente y a buen costo. Me gustaria saber mas.

  2. Tom, I will probably be taking a look at the place assuming I get there before some one snatches it up. I will let you know about the refacing if I do see it. I am doubtful I will buy the place at this point but I am very encouraged at the prices. I wonder when the Beaver Brook townhouse sellers will get the memo that you can now buy a larger house with a yard for cheaper than they are currently selling the condo.

  3. Quick thought: regardless of whether or not prioritising the marketability of the service is a guarantee that consumers will be treated fairly, is it only the latter point that matters? Surely we need regulatory bodies of some sort to guarantee that people other than customers are treated fairly? What about the environmental impact of project finance ventures for example? Voluntary standards can only take us so far. As to whether consumer conscience can act as an effective check on such things, surely we can all agree that there is such a thing as market inertia?

  4. Laurel…not to speak for Ms. Wilhelm, but I think you may have missed the first book, “Death Qualified.” Definitely hunt it down if you haven’t read it.I’m currently working my way through all the Barbara Holloway books and am enjoying them immensely. I have no idea how they escaped my notice before now! Actually I came on this site to say that as a professional writer, I really enjoyed “Storyteller,” and have recommended it to many promising writers.

  6. Hi Fred. No, I’m not criticizing you. I worked for NJ.com about 13 years ago. I can’t remember the blog’s title but it was under my name. My editor would occasionally have news staff pick fights with me over gun control, politics, etc. I think I recognize some tells that indicate P is part of the dailyrecord.com staff. Their writing skill aren’t as tight as the regular newspaper (more like TV) and they rely on web skill more that their own brain cells.Anyways, that’s what I was referring to.

  9. Hi I like all the rest of you are wanting to play, play play. But you know— we get this game for free and so I guess I can be patient till these creative people finish what they make for US!!! I know it sucks!! But cut them a little slack people! We do like the games or we would not be begging for them to hurry up!! lol PS — can any of you create these games?

  10. GrimDetails? What drives the increase in low end incomes during recessions?And by ‘low end’ it’s not just the bottom 50%, but at least the ‘bottom’ 90%.I’d like to know. Mostly because these data were an eye opener for me on how really screwed we may be.I strongly suspect that for the first time in a generation AGI may have decreased across all groups, not just the top 1-10% as usual.It was a bit surprising that AGI didn’t always respond to recessions, but thinking about it a decline in C+I+G need not correlate directly with AGI.Any background you can give is appreciated.

  11. Grim,Have you thought what form this blog will take once the housing bubble actually bursts? I mean once you have convinced people, which you are doing an excellent job of, IMHO, what is your next adventure? Just like the realtors, you will have to find something else to occupy your time!! LOL…keep up the great work!!

  12. i predict a bizarre conglomeration of multiculturalism and ‘pop’ christianity, will develop as a result of the increasingly racist and sexist discoveries biologists are making. dis: ‘The Bell Curve’ and ‘The g-Factor’ most likely violate your university’s speech code (you could be arrested for reading passages from either book on many college campuses). I’m sure galileo had contemporaries who understood the world was round.

  13. I really wanted to develop a quick comment in order to appreciate you for these remarkable tips and tricks you are placing on this website. My rather long internet look up has now been compensated with pleasant concept to go over with my colleagues. I would assume that we site visitors actually are undeniably fortunate to be in a useful network with so many brilliant people with helpful things. I feel quite fortunate to have discovered your webpages and look forward to tons of more amazing moments reading here. Thanks once again for a lot of things.

  14. Everyone is undeniable, the outdoor market benchmark, its several classic products to withstand the test of the most harsh conditions, so far enduring has been the other manufacturers to catch up with the target, especially summit series the vertex series, the whole boutique, boutique! From another perspective, the imitation goods more than illustrate its good quality and have so many people went imitation Yeah, why did not people to imitate other brand!

  15. Ah. I was going to post this very thought. I sometimes look at the exercise regimes of fellow bloggers and really wonder about myself. It always comes down to that pesky exercise.I am so glad that sorta thinking does not bleed into my other parts of my life.I see lots and lots of people (men and women) who suffer from the I am not perfect enough thinking. This post is a nice beginning to get us rethinking how we perceive ourselves and treat ourselves.

  18. Wow, much too long since the last time I was here There is some stuff. Well actually I can use this article too, I’m so glad I found this site again. I need this article one of my school projects, and mine is on the same subject as yours. I am relieved that I found it, great share.

  19. That’s one of the neatest ways to sum up what a lot of words have been written about! Great post thanks Outsourcing Tech Support!Some of my recent posts starting with this one actually show clearly what is changing and even in surveys measure the new focus or change in working methods that business managers are looking for.

  20. I have flashed my phone. But now can not use “repair” option in PC Companion. Although the update is available for Rogers (1233-6929) – I checked on the XDA forum. Consistently appears this message: “There is no software available for your phone yet. Please try again later.”

  24. Hm, when I made my comment, I meant it as a somewhat positive obeservation: i.e. there is nothing wrong with exposing your fears and more personal side (in certain situations). So I simply wanted to state there was nothing embarrassing in the story, without demanding a “better answer”.Now, if you had gone Chuck Norris on *that girl*, that would have been embarrassing ))

  26. Hoi Bas en Coby,Nu pas gelegenheid om jullie blog te bekijken, wat zijn jullie foto's super goed geworden, zeker gezien de omstandigheden, mooi hoor die burlende herten en het gevecht, ook de rustende herten heb je prachtig.Tja, ik moet zelf nog een keer terug want mijn foto's van deze dag zijn echt het plaatsen niet waard……Maar, het was een hele leuke en gezellige dag, en daar gaat het ook om.groetjes Ghita

  27. 私もお世話になったママと波長あわなくなって 離れました。がんばってあわせてみたりいろいろやろうとして 結局イライラしてる自分がいるんですよ。家の中でもため息や愚痴でたら 友達の意味ないぢゃんと思って 距離置きました。育児の仲間ってか相談だったり愚痴言い合い仲間だったり情報交換だったりと同じ立場だから助け合える仲間のはずが 負担になるんだったらいらないかな。てか・・・子供の外おしっこやテーブルに足は見たくないです^^;それに うち夜電話でないんですよ。かばんに入れっぱなしで外出するときに気がついたぁーとか言ってすっとぼけてます^^;ガンガンくるタイプの人に何か言っても無駄でしょうから そっとそーーと離れるのが吉かと。偏頭痛してさぁ・・・寝てたとか言って 華麗にかわしましょ^-^無視したり否定したりしたら 強烈な攻撃きそうなタイプだし(憶測で言って申し訳ないけど)携帯なくして探しててさぁ やっと見つかったとか言って2.3日誰とも連絡取らないでのんびりしてみるのもいいんぢゃないですか?

  30. I think this is a distinct possibility. A always got a feeling that a lot of the talking up of Ruf that RAJ has been doing is to set up a trade. Unfortunately I think that iin the long term this would be a bad trade for the Phillies. I still see Ruf developing into a Pat the Bat who weas never given the respect in Philly he deserved. I was hoping more for Ruf to be involved in a OF or 3B trade rather than a reliever.

  31. I think that you should do something just for the non-partners. partners get everything and that sucks because at one point the partners of today were a nobody and now a days it is alot harder to get recognized on youtube if your not a partner… also alot of non-partners are here to have a good time they don't want to make money out of this they enjoy it so i think that we should have a subscribe banner or something special because in the years to come we are the one's that will keep youtube alive…

  32. la Lituanie sera sans doute moins difficile que l’Ukraine mais je pense que l’équipe de France a largement le niveau pour les battre tous (même l’Ecosse s’ils faisaent un minimum d’efforts!!!)en tout cas, j’espère qu’ils vont gagner et qu’Henry dépassera le maître Platini…

  33. But Robert! If everything isn’t criminalized, then how can the State brand us all as criminals? And if we aren’t all criminals, then why would we all live in fear of telling our friends anything and of being grabbed off the street? And if we weren’t all living in fear, then where would the State be?It was recently quoted here that War is the Health of the State. Possibly true, but Fear is the Lifeblood of the State.  SteveF

  35. Hallo Andreas Job,dass da (Digibib/Genwiki) viel viel mehr Sachen drin sind, als ich aufzählen kann, ist ja klar. Ich habe versucht, mit möglichst konkreetn Beispielen Lust und Neugier auf dieses großartige Angebot zu wecken.Danke für den Hinweis in Hinblick auf die Bibliotheken/Archive. Ich bin mir allerdings nicht so sicher, wie hoch das auf deren Prioritätenliste steht – denn Digitalisieren kostet Zeit. Aber je mehr Menschen davon wissen …Herzliche Grüße

  36. Boy I'm glad I'm not a Republican . What do you think that all those fired teachers, policemen, firemen, and others will do on their down time? We seen how irration white racist hillbillies get when they THINK something is being taken away from them. When the Republicans actually do it in their FACE and tell them that they are doing it things won't look nice. You can't scream about a Mosque or Sharia law when you have a empty plate coutersy of Scott Walker and John KKKasich.

  37. What a wonderful quote! I like it very much because it’s so true…I definitely believe I became ill because I wasn’t following my heart..a part of that healing has been through writing and I am very blessed to have had my poetry published…not something I had thought about at the time. Thank you ever so much, Amanda!

  39. La nouvelle politique du RCT commence à donner déjà des résultats!! 5 sélectionnés dans le groupe de 33 retenus par PSA, cela fait du RCT le 3ème pourvoyeur d’internationaux derrière Clermont et Toulouse. Et parmi ces 5, 2 jeunes formés au club avec Martin et Gunther + 1 présent au club depuis plusieurs saisons avec Suta.J’aime bien la nouvelle politique de Bernard Laporte qui privilégie la qualité à la quantité. Les 29 contrats pros sont tous des joueurs de premier plan et leur sont associés des jeunes très talentueux.

En zo is het in feite ook: het is een, – als je het goed en wel bekijkt best intiem – kijkje in je dagelijkse leven: het is zoals jij het inricht, beleeft, meemaakt, ervaart, en het zijn al die kleine dingen waar je van geniet.Dus. Houd dat vol! Dan sterven we gelukkig. ;-D Fijn weekend!PS: En meekijken is ook meegenieten.

  42. Hiya, first off let me tell you that I enjoy your current blog. And also if you don’t mind me asking, what web hosting are you presently working with since I noticed that the response time is rather quick and I am in the process of making my very own blog site.

  43. Even though these did not live up to your expectations, your photos make it look fantastic. I really love these at Chat Thai. However, I am quite skeptical about the Chat Thai recipe. It is a bit all over the place and the instructions are poor. My mum made it and it was very chewy and tough and became stale very quickly.I doubt the recipe they hand out is the actual one that they use.

  44. J’ai envoyer l’image sur Imageshark et un lien à ta messagerie Youtube. Tu remarquera que dans la précipitation mon orthographe est si laxiste qu’un Yougoslave écrairai mieux le Français que je l’est fait moi même. Mais observe bien la stratégie, le but est de crée une défense élastique et de replier effiasement nos forces en un temps très court car la forme de la formation se coordone par les coins des carés d’infanterie et permet de limiter les petrtes engendrés.

  45. – I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog audience have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

  46. Demoralization, Destabilization, Insurgency, Normalization. Stan Lee is a pink rabbit, so no surprises at all. Nothing that happens on the idiot box known as tv is by accident. The only question, is if we have finished the destabilization phase and are actively moving towards insurgency. The so-called Occupy Wall street and some of the other signs seem to suggest it might be near. It’s a Soros operation, which means NWO and they’ve already promised violence for 2012.

  48. ROFL! I know, right? See for you, I see canvas with watercolor brushes and pastels in the easel tray. Inside the canvas, an Adirondack chair on a beach with a sunset on a canvas on an easel beside it as your brand. I am telling you, it is easy for me to see it for others, but I drop the ball when it comes to me. *sigh*

  49. / Linda, the response you have recieved prove how uninformed some people are. The man that leads us is the divide and conquer type. He has no experience outside his little bubble of government never had a real job and work for what he has gotten. He has a soul that is black and cold for this country. When this nightmare of a presidentcy ends maybe others under his spell will realize what has been brought to bare.

  50. Got this idea off DelLib just now but don't have time to run it through. Start positioning Gary Johnson as the best alternative to Obama. I have to do the research on Gary first, but I believe you already have some knowledge there. As Romney becomes entangled in Bain which looks like it may happen, bringing up a true Republican who ran New Mexico and tried out for the nomination, as the sane alternative to Obama. Thought I'd give you a head start.

  51. Simply want to say your article is as astonishing. The clarity in your post is just spectacular and i can assume you’re an expert on this subject. Fine with your permission let me to grab your RSS feed to keep updated with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please continue the gratifying work.

  52. So true about wanting others to like it and also sympathize! I still have mixed feelings about Twitter. I like that I can include my blog name in my user name. But I just don’t know how people keep up with all the tweets! I only follow a few hundred people and new tweets pop up almost constantly when I’m logged in. E-mail follows are what makes me jump up and down because you know those people will get notified of every new post. You are right though, comments are awesome also!

  53. Hi, your code’s really useful for what I’m doing but the next and previous buttons aren’t showing after I put the whole code inside a php file and included it in pagination.php along with “” at the bottom. The loop limit works though. Is it necessary to have the whole code in a single file?Thank you for your time and effort, really appreciate it!

  54. Kobe cannot guard Westbrook. Has anyone watched the Thunder play the Lakers this year? Westbrook has a gear that Kobe no longer has.There is a reason the Lakers get destroyed by quick point guards. If Kobe was capable of altering this, then they would put him on the point guard and they could alleviate that problem.With the Lakers, there is no answer for stopping Westbrook. Much like there was no answer for stopping JJ Barea, Ty Lawson, Aaron Brooks, and the list goes on.

  55. brian w brownvery well written article stephen.Difficult to see how it will ever gain any traction though, as for most of the criminal lawyers its demise would be seen as biting the hand that feeds them, because there need to tell the accused stories would deminish at an alarming rate.Would less theatrics in court be such a bad thing???

  56. Agreed re: the public toilet. The canopy is a welcome addition, but the area around the stop is still used as an all day gathering place for some aggressive street people, and 5th street is a haven for drug dealing and panhandling. It would be nice to exit the station and not have to face all that on a day-in and day-out basis.

  57. Thank you sharing such informative blog to us. I never see or heard about this insects. I love to watch national geographic, discovery channel because it shows the most amazing and beautiful animals and insects which we never saw in our entire life. Here, in this as well you share these insects which I never saw anywhere and its life cycle. I love this blog. Thank you once again for sharing this blog with us. Please keep on sharing such informative things in coming days as well. Cheers

  59. Los masones no se hacen tanto problema y definen a la figura superior como "el gran arquitecto" y obvio se asume que cada uno imagina al arquitecto como quiere (Existen los arquitectos tipo juanito y Pedrito) pero se asume que el arquitecto hace el plano y se va y son los obreros los que actúan… creo que es el avance màs racional a responder tu pregunta. ¿Me equivoco? ¿Hay algún masón que lo  pueda aclarar antes de seguir?   

  60. Not a huge fan of the orange…shouldn’t a primary color ever, and I say that as a grad of Booker T Washington and oSu. Too much orange is kind of frightening unless it’s Halloween, but guess it’s personal preference. I wouldn’t worry though, they’ll be wearing orange tops, pants and now helmets. If they monochrome the orange I might lose some Joe’s chili fries though…just warning y’all, hah hah.

  61. And yet such a seemingly evil book still teaches equal responses and prohibits excessive revenge.The restriction against excessive harm is a limit one must observe in one’s own life. Isn’t it even better to forego revenge completely where this is realistic?

  63. Oh, by the way, during the first oil embargo, oil refineries were required to design, build, and test coal gasification plants. Once they were up and running, they were shut down and buttoned up. They are sitting there waiting for an absolute emergency – no oil, no fuel. It’s expensive. But not as expensive as no heating oil, etc.

  64. Se i “valori non negoziabili ” dei cattolici dovessero cambiare a piacimento , se dovessero essere decisi dai vertici del Corriere della Sera , da Scalfari e De Bortoli, da Cacciari e Mancosu, staremmo freschi!!!! speriamo che il Santo Padre non si lasci travolgere da questa ridicola ingerenza dei media laici nella dottrina e nella vita della Chiesa!!!!!

  65. I suppose, if you were a quarrelsome cunt, you might argue that Shammy adapted The Last Queefscout from the cartoon, but it comes to pretty much the same (and he got writing “credit” – and I use the term loosely, like your mother – on the film).

  66. Tell you what is funny…back in the 80′s we went to Bahrain and Singapore to visit some friends working for China air and another overseas airlines…one of the couples in our circle and on this trip was Jewish and someone suggested we go to Israel on the way home (I guess assuming the Jewish couple would be interested in that)..but Ha!..they nixed that idea pretty harshly…did not want to go near it.

  67. I actually read the WSJ, how the fuck did I miss this? To be fair to PK, if somebody offered me ridiculous money to shit out a column a couple times a week, there is no instrument on earth that could measure how fast I would say yes to that. So yeah, we can blame PK’s no-taste-or intelligence-having fanbase for his hefty salary. PK’s just selling out. It’s the American way. Also, is “asstaster” the title of a porn? Because if it isn’t, it should be. Do people still think having a copy of “The Art of War” is the mark of a true intellectual? Damn…

  68. how about my canon vixia hf m30 video camera was stolen from my checked bags united airlines from Halifax to Newark to Edinburgh Aug 30 2012. I opened my bags in scotland and no video camera. Now I have to fight to get it replaced. I saw them chucking bag in newark but couldn’t film it as y camaera was missing LOL. Never again with them.

  69. When my children were young I had a period of expenses that stretched from September to the end of January – school and sports fees, car registration, house and car insurance and Christmas to name a few. Plus one major appliance always invariably broke down during that time, or I had some other big expense.It was fast and easy to do a financial review in each new year – I had no money left!

  70. Thanks Emily, I really appreciate hearing your feedback. Yes, it is definitely the hardest job ever, and it seems like the stakes are much higher than other jobs. The idea that you are responsible for other human beings’ welfare is daunting, and we are bound to make a lot of mistakes.Stephanie recently posted…

  71. I have taken note that of all different types of insurance, medical health insurance is the most dubious because of the struggle between the insurance policies company’s necessity to remain profitable and the user’s need to have insurance policy. Insurance companies’ commission rates on overall health plans are certainly low, hence some businesses struggle to make a profit. Thanks for the ideas you talk about through this site.

  72. Hi Christina,Really cute post! I agree. What could be sexier than a man being a good father? It’s one of the reasons I’m still very much in love with my hubby.As for books, my sons always loved for us to read Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? by Dr. Seuss. Probably my favorite Seuss book. So quirky and fun.
