The president of the National Fisheries Society (SNP), Elena Conterno Martinelli, said that her sector would grow up to 40 per cent, driven by the increased catch of anchovy, in line with the estimates of the Central Reserve Bank.

As she explained, the fishing activity of her sector is already normalizing its production and in that sense, "a good year" is expected.

Conterno said, "We agree with the projection of the Central Reserve Bank and different specialists who place between 30 and 40 per cent the growth that must have the fishery in this year, mainly explained by the anchovy that already is in normal conditions."

In that sense, the executive stressed that the fishing union is confident that they will have "two good fishing seasons", whose production will lead to the creation of more jobs, more exports and bring dynamism to all the ports of the country.

"This 2017, we started in January with what corresponds to the end of the season that began last year, in which we have caught 500,000 tonnes of anchovy, which is the main Peruvian fishery, so this is a good beginning," she highlighted.

She also emphasized that as weather conditions continue to normalize, horse mackerel is expected to return to the Peruvian sea, a species that has been absent in recent seasons, Agencia Andina reported.

"Horse mackerel that is so appreciated by housewives for being a valuable, versatile protein, some say it is the 'sea chicken', and therefore, we expect it to come back in abundance to bring this type of fish to Peruvian households with competitive prices," Conterno concluded.
