The government of Chile has publicly committed to implement the FiTI.

A public commitment demonstrates a sincere intention of the country’s government to increase transparency in fisheries management through the FiTI. However, the commitment should not be misinterpreted as official acceptance into the initiative. Only when such a commitment is followed by concrete implementation activities (such as the establishment of a FiTI National Multi-Stakeholder Group or the agreement on the country’s first FiTI workplan) and the subsequent approval of the country’s Candidate Application by the FiTI International Board will Chile be formally recognised as an FiTI implementing country.

Chile is a top five exporter of seafood worldwide, and the largest seafood exporter in Latin America (FAO 2024). Chile’s staggering 6,435 km coastline has also bolstered an increasingly significant artisanal fishing sector.

Since 2022, the FiTI has been collaborating with stakeholders in Chile (government, business, civil society) to raise awareness about the importance of transparency for the country’s marine fisheries sector.
