Anchovy Fishing Suspended


According to a Ministerial Resolution, all fishing of anchovy and white anchovy is suspended from the northern border of the Peruvian maritime territory to the south (Chala – Arequipa), as of 00:00 hours of Friday, 12th May,
This is due to the fact that the fishing quota set for the period between May 2nd until June 5th, 2006 has expired. During the suspension of fishing activities, the industrial fishing establishments will only be allowed to receive and process the anchovy if they hold a valid manufacturing license for the processing of products for direct human consumption.
