The governments of Peru and Japan announced the launch of Phase II of the Fish Development and Promotion for Human Consumption Project in the Andean highlands of the centre-south of Peru in order to boost the intake of anchovies through new products and to combat malnutrition in the region.

The initiative was communicated by the Deputy Minister of Fisheries, Rocio Barrios, adding that the idea of both countries is to encourage the consumption of this pelagic species in Ayacucho, Apurímac and Huancavelica.

The new products are developed by the Instituto Tecnológico Pesquero del Perú (ITP) and the Overseas Fishery Cooperation Foundation (OFCF), an organization that will invest USD 293,000.

"The said project has two stages. In the first one, a study was conducted on the supply and demand for fish and fishery products in the Andean highlands. In addition, a number of products made with anchovy was promoted," said Peruvian Vice Minister after meeting with the Japanese ambassador in the country, Masahiro Fukukawa, and OFCF director, Shimba Fukudka, among other officials.

To combat poverty, various foods are proposed: anchovies in tomato sauce and in grated in pouches doy-pack, canned concentrated soup and dry and salted products (saladita, otoshimi, anchovy and bonito for the economic sausage production).

"Through various studies, it was found that dried anchovy is accepted by the children in the highlands for being similar to other products such as jerked beef," said Barrios.

In this second stage, the aim is to standardize these products, to determine their acceptance among the population and to raise consumption.

"Thus, we will be able to have a portfolio of new products, which may be used by private companies so that this sector can be incorporated into social support programmes from the central government," added the deputy minister.

On the other hand, the Ministry of Production (Produce) decided to promote social inclusion in the Puno region, specifically in the district of Ilave through the opening of a two-tonne refrigerated chamber.

This initiative aims to supply with frozen and fresh anchovy and horse mackerel in this area of Peru.

The government aims to combat malnutrition and anemia in children with protein-rich products, vitamins, minerals and omega 3 oils, and develop a marketing chain of sea fish, reported Produce.

According to the latest Statistical Bulletin prepared by Produce, between January and June 2011 a total of 4,281,400 tonnes of anchovy were landed, that is to say, 61.9 per cent over the same period in 2010, when 2,644,800 tonnes were unloaded.

Meanwhile, only in June this year 706,400 tonnes of anchovy were landed, a figure representing a decrease of 38.5 per cent over the same month of 2010.
