HIGHLIGHT:

Tuna fishing does not grow but predicted to increase by 2021

on . Posted in News

PERU : The Peruvian fishing fleet will close this year with a catch of 10,000 tons of tuna, similar to that registered in 2017, without having recorded an increase in fishing.

 

However, tuna processing is expected to quadruple throughout the year of the bicentennial anniversary, as indicated by Alfonso Miranda, president of the Peruvian Chamber of Tuna, reported El Comercio.

In this regard, Miranda estimated that by 2019 the tuna industry will process 35,000 tonnes, of which 15,000 tonnes will come from direct capture, and 20,000 tonnes from the acquisition of other companies.

The projection is greater towards the bicentennial anniversary.

"By 2021, it is expected to reach a processing of 100,000 tonnes of tuna," said Miranda.

"It is necessary to simplify cumbersome procedures, give the fleet the competitive condition it requires and withdraw the Selective Consumption Tax (ISC) that do not have it in other countries, improve port infrastructure and refrigerators," he concluded.
