Peru’s Production Ministry organized a meeting between the 4 Pacific Alliance countries in which they pledged to exchange marine research and scientific data.

In another positive development for Pacific Alliance relations, it was announced yesterday that Peru, Chile, Colombia, and Mexico have agreed to share marine and scientific data between their countries.  It is hoped that this development will encourage aquaculture and fortify the fishing sector important to all 4 countries, Andina reports.

This development comes just after the 1st ever bilateral cabinet between Peru and Chile, a meeting between political leaders that resulted in more than 100 signed agreements between the 2 countries.

One of Peru’s deputy ministers Hector Soldi stated that this is part of an effort by all Pacific Alliance members “towards global hydrobiological sustainability.”

Peru is also currently in the process of making its fishing boat data publicly available through Global Fishing Watch.  They will join Indonesia as 1 of only 2 countries in the world to take part in the groundbreaking open-source experiment.
