Landscape Analysis of Peruvian Artesanal Anchoveta Fishery
Sustainable Fisheries Group & The Nature Conservancy
The Peruvian anchoveta fishery from the northern-central stock is the largest single fish biomass in the world, providing more than 90% of the total fish landings in Peru. Exports of anchoveta products currently generate around US$2.5 billion annually, which has led to the anchoveta fishery being governed by an interesting but complex spectrum of institutions and regulations, with contrasting management systems for the different operating fleets. This research aims to assess current management dynamics, and identify promising opportunities to explore reforms for enhanced multi-objefctive management reforms.
