The Royal Spanish Hunting Federation (RFEC), as part of the Board of Directors of the Interprofessional Association of Wild game Meat (ASICCAZA), participated in the last meeting of this entity, which took place in Ciudad Real, to address the issues affecting the sector.
Among the various points covered, the Royal Spanish Hunting Federation defended the producer of hunting, that is to say, the hunter, as one of the main affected by the conditions they want to impose on the drafts of decrees to regulate the bushmeat in some regions, leaving it clear that, under no circumstances, you should set limitations on the number of pieces of small game shot to determine if they pass to be considered “for internal consumption” or “for sale”.
The RFEC insisted that it is the job of the authorities to act with all the strength necessary in the case of detected attempts of illegal sale of game meat intended for home consumption.
Also clarified the RFEC that the Andalusian Federation of Hunting, as the legal representative of the national Federation, shall directly carry out the defense of the interests of their hunters federated in the draft decree that will regulate the sanitary conditions of the meat from hunting in Andalusia, a draft that, in its current wording, it would have a negative impact on the cinegetic activity in andalusia.
Another topic of discussion were the agreements that ASICCAZA plan to carry out with various entities and media to publicize the game meat, collaborations we supported fully the RFEC, because, in the words of its president, Ángel López Maraver, “the promotion of the meat from hunting is essential to both the Interprofessional as well as for the collective game”.
