The Ministry of Food Industry established maximum catch quotas for spiny lobster to authorized boats and companies, with the obligation to stop fishing after meeting their plans.

The resolution authorizes the Business Group of the Food Industry to distribute the quota among companies of Batabanó Gulf without exceeding the total allowable catch allocated to the area.
