The content and main objective of the Coastal Aquaculture Master Plan (PDAL) is to establish the definition of guidelines for the installation of marine culture establishments in the land area, as well as for the expansion of existing establishments.
This plan was developed within the Galician Aquaculture Strategy. It was born with the will to be a strategic document of territorial nature that, from clarity and integration, regulates coastal aquaculture facilities from a holistic perspective. To this end, it proposes dynamic management of the territory, without delimiting specific sites, being conceived as a framework document for the consideration of those areas of the territory most suitable for the implementation of these activities, simultaneously attending to the fragility of the environment and the technical requirements of the activity.
It proposes a dynamic management model that analyzes at different times the different indexes that define the reception capacity and the load capacity. Enabling a gis viewer that allows at all times to have the best information on the territory in which it is intended to act. You can check the rest of the information in this INTECMAR link.
The tasks developed by Manuel Borobio Sanchiz, were the Technical Direction and coordination of the editorial team, with special relevance in the Design and definition of the territorial model, the management model and the indicator systems for decision making.
Being Rosa Quintana Minister of Rural and Marine Affairs, and Juan Carlos Maneiro the General Director, was part of the team, among others: Ángel Menéndez Rexach, Berta Roca, Dolores Méndez Torres, Gonzalo Méndez, Juan Freire, Noela Sánchez, José Turrado , Alberto Santos, Melania Payán, Marcos Pérez Gulin, Leticia Bas
One of the fundamental milestones of this Plan was the elaboration of a mapping that delimited the coastal area in 4 different zones, declaring zones 1 and 2 compatible for aquaculture and establishing a precaution for zones 3 and 4, through publication in the DOGA of the ORDER of March 15, 2012, joint of the Ministry of Environment, Territory and Infrastructure and of the Rural and Marine Environment, on the regime of the environmental evaluation of aquaculture establishments in the coastal part of the land area. This order meant the protection of the most sensitive areas of the coast in coherence with the Coastline Plan, allowing, however, the intervention and implementation of aquaculture establishments in those areas without known values or existing protections.
