Royal decree of (Charles IV of Spain)
To rescue the fishing industry from stagnation various privileges were given during the reign of Charles IV. These have not been sufficient to allow the development of which industry is capable; more funds and more persons of accepted ability are needed. Don Antonio Sanez Reguart, commissioner of the Marine and Don Geronimo Hixosa, honorary counselor of War together with Joseph Ventura de Aranalde, Tomas Antonio de Marien y Arnospide and Felipe de Orbegozo y Larranaga have formed a plan for the fishing company. This plan now has the royal approval and therefore the Royal Maritime Company has been formed under royal protection and concerning which the following seventy-nine articles are to be observed. Signed by Antonio Valdes. (This decree has forty-four printed pages.)
