The Ministry of Production (Produce) decided to ban fishing for tuna and for similar species to Peruvian flagged purse seine vessels with a carrying capacity that is greater than 182 tonnes in the Eastern Pacific Ocean (EPO) from 18 November, 2013 to 18 January, 2014.

While the ban is in effect, purse seiners with the above features having the Peruvian flag should remain in port.

However, vessels not fishing in the EPO and carrying an observer from the Agreement on the International Dolphin Conservation Programme (IDCP) on board may go fishing during the closed period.

The purse seine vessels being between 182 and 272 metric tonnes of carrying capacity with an observer on board may perform a single fishing trip lasting up to 30 days during the closure, reported the Produce.

In addition, within the time allocated tuna or tuna-derived products will be prohibited as well as transhipments if they are identified as coming from tuna vessels within the areas considered for fishing the resource.

Pole and line vessels, trolling boats and recreational fishing, and seine vessels with a carrying capacity of less than 182 tonnes are not subject to this measure.

The EPO area is bounded by the coast of North, Central and South America and by the following lines: the parallel 50° North from the coast of North America to its intersection with the meridian 150° West; the meridian 150° West to its intersection with the parallel 50° S; and 50° S parallel to its intersection with the South American coast.

The decision adopted by Produce meets the conservation and management measures set in the 83rd Meeting of the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC), held in June 2012, for vessels fishing for yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares), bigeye tuna (Thunnus obesus) and skipjack tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis).
