Galicia is the first region of the European Union to create a foundation with a public-private board for the study of maritime and fisheries legal matters, MarInnLeg.

In the act of constitution of MarInnLeg, the council of Sea, Rosa Quintana, stressed the importance of the creation of this foundation to “cover those technical aspects that have to do with the fishing activity in its different versions, both in the economic, as in the legal and in the administrative”.

Rosa Quintana said that although MarInnleg has just been officially constituted, it is already working on different issues, including the analysis of Brexit and a report on the impact of tax lease on the construction of fishing boats.

The MarInnLeg foundation will be chaired by the council of Sea, Rosa Quintana, and will seek to contribute to the sustainable socioeconomic development of the Galician maritime sector through the promotion and transfer of legal knowledge in this area. It arises from the need to bet on the improvement of maritime and fisheries legal knowledge as a key factor to stimulate innovation, development and economic growth in the medium and long term.

It seeks, therefore, to respond to the current challenges to which the sectors of the blue economy of Galicia are subject, in an increasingly complex environment, both by international competition and by the various levels of decision-making and regulation, and that are related to foreign and domestic trade, competition policies, the economy, employment and the environment.

This foundation is constituted as a public-private alliance, formed by clusters, public administrations, research centers of public-private entities and civil society. The Consellería del Mar, the Port Authority of Vigo, the Campus del Mar, Aclunaga, Arvi, Asime, Cepesca, Conxemar, Abanca and Banco Sabadell form part of its board of directors.

MarInnLeg is a project framed in the Blue Growth Plan led by the Port Authority of Vigo and in which the Galician universities participate, different associations of the sectors, companies, the Port of Vigo and the central and regional administrations.
