Opportunity for Fisheries in Peru

Projections on fish consumption in Peru predict an increase from the 300,000 tonnes in 2012 to 500,000 tons in 2013.

Wednesday, February 6, 2013

A statement from the Costa Rica Trade Promotion Office (PROCOMER) reads:

In 2013, fish consumption in Peru could increase to more than 500 thousand tons

The Ministry of Production of Peru noted that in 2012 more than 300 thousand tons of fish were consumed directly, and that figure is expected to be widely exceeded in 2013, when it is projected that fish consumption will increase to over 500,000 tons, said Gladys Triveño, head of sector.

"According to data from last November we are over the 300,000 tones targeted for direct human consumption (CHD), which far exceeds what has happened in other years and reveals the growth potential of this sector," said Triveño .
