The Ministry of Production (PRODUCE) will define next week whether there will be a second anchovy fishing season in the northern-central area, the head of the sector, Piero Ghezzi informed.

The decision to be taken will depend on the results of the research survey conducted by the Instituto del Mar del Peru (IMARPE) to assess the anchovy biomass, which has just concluded.

"This will be the key input to make a decision," said minister Ghezzi.

The minister explained that IMARPE survey was to end on 15 October, but he did so on 29 September because of the imminent El Niño phenomenon.

"We advanced the central-northern survey. And there is always room to work later, we have three more months and there is scope for further monitoring. What we have to do for fishing activities is to have flexible policies as advancing or delaying the season, balancing and resource sustainability," said the minister in statements to Gestion.

Meanwhile, experts from the organization Oceana Peru ensured that the current sea conditions do not favour a good development of the anchovy due to the presence of El Niño. Therefore, they consider it appropriate not to advance the second fishing season of this resource, initially scheduled for November.

"While not certainty is kept of the extent of the climate event, the precautionary principle should apply", stated Patricia Majluf, Oceana vice president.

The organization dedicated to the marine conservation also requested PRODUCE to strengthen the protection of the five-mile zone reserved for the exclusive use of artisanal fishing without authorizing emergency regulations that allow the access to larger vessels.

In addition, it argues that the fisheries authorities should establish regulations and provide technical support to ensure the proper use of species that appear with El Niño, such as scallops, tuna and yellowtail amberjack.

In the northern-central area, which represents over 90 per cent of all catches of Peruvian anchoveta, 2.51 million tonnes were caught in the first season of this year, equivalent to 97.20 per cent of the set quota (2,58 million tonnes) compared to 1.68 million tonnes in 2014.
