  • Uruguayan Government announced the construction of a fishing pier

    Uruguayan Government announced the construction of a fishing pier in the Capurro area, Montevideo, and the call for bids to build a seafood freezing plant. By achieving so, Uruguay shall strengthen its position as an operation base for overseas fishing vessels. In this port terminal Spanish, Korean, Chinese vessels operate as well as those from other countries for unloading goods, equipment repair and crew member transshipment. Uruguay has certain comparative advantages over other countries in the region, making it an attractive destination for foreign fishing fleets: Argentina does not allow landing activities of foreign fishing vessels, and Brazil does not have the free port system implemented in Montevideo. The works of the fishing terminal in Capurro will begin in July 2017, and it is expected to be completed in two years. The project includes a 1,200 metre pier for industrial fishing vessels and their cost is estimated at USD 90 million.
