CFL Hunter represents fishing industry progress

2022 marks the 40th anniversary of the Liberation of the Falkland Islands and CFL is proud to have their flagship longliner the CFL Hunter representing the fishing industry on a special commemorative stamp issue.

CFL Hunter is the first ever Falklands registered fishing vessel to be built solely with Falklands capital investment.

Launched in February 2017, the longliner was an historic milestone for the Falklands fishing industry and other companies have since followed suit.

The year has been called “Looking Forward at Forty” making it a time to reflect on achievements since 1982, and to look forward to the next 40 years of life in the Falkland Islands.

The 40th anniversary, special stamp issue focuses on three important aspects of the Falklands’ economy, which have thrived, grown and been responsibly and sustainably developed over the last four decades.

The introduction of a Fisheries Conservation Zone and management regime in 1986 transformed the economy of the Falkland Islands, securing self-sufficiency in all areas except defence and external affairs.

While the economic impact of the fishery has been transformational, the fundamental objective is the long-term sustainability of fishery resources for the benefit of future generations. This includes not only the commercial target species, but also reducing harmful impacts on bycatch species, seabirds and marine mammals.

The other main Falklands industries of Tourism and Agriculture are also depicted on the stamp issue.
