The president of the Committee on Fisheries and Aquaculture, Carlos Milanovitch, emphasized that companies in their sector do not have their own fishing fleet, and therefore buy the marine resources of artisanal fishing, generating a great labor impact.

Lima.- The president of the Committee of Fisheries and Aquaculture of the National Society of Industries (SNI), Carlos Milanovitch, projected that exports of fishery products for direct human consumption would reach USD 1.8 billion at the end of 2019, after registering 1,339 million in 2018, due to the increase in the operational capacity of companies.

"In all the plants we have increased and improved the freezing and processing capacities, in spite of the problems of the sector that the entrepreneurs trust that it will be overcome," he said.

Milanovitch stressed that companies in their sector do not have their own fishing fleet, and therefore buy the marine resources of artisanal fishing, generating a great labor impact.

The main products that work are hake, pota, squid, prawns, tuna, among others.

“Peru is a great fishing country and not only for fishmeal, the confluence of the Niño stream with hot waters and the Humboldt stream that comes from the south with cold waters, generates an ecosystem favorable for marine species,” explained.

He said that most of the processing plants for direct human consumption fisheries are located in the north of the country, in Paita, in the Piura region; Of the 35 that operate in the country, 30 are associated with the Committee that presides in the SIN, and 25 of them are in Paita.

Work impact. He also indicated that only 30,000 formal jobs are generated in the processing plants and the demand for local labor could even be doubled, if the sector's standards are streamlined, in order to boost the productivity and competitiveness of the sector.

A formal worker in the processing plants, for the fillet of the fish, can earn 7,000 soles per month (USD 2,077).

Growth potential “Today we have very well covered all of Asia, which includes, China, Japan and Korea, which are the big buyers of pot; Hake is sent to Europe, to destinations such as France, England, Belgium, Spain, Russia, Poland; we sent the parakeet to the United States, ”explained Milanovitch.

"Where we need to enter are the Arab countries, which are already starting to ship some products for Turkey, Algeria, but it is a potential market that needs to be developed, just like that of India," he added.

Milanovtich said that the Peruvian export sector of fishing for direct human consumption has been able to develop in the last 20 years thanks to the fulfillment of demanding international sanitary regulations to enter European, North American and Asian markets, as well as the Peruvian foreign trade policy with the Free Trade Agreements (FTA) that the country has signed.

For entry into Europe and the United Kingdom, they comply with the BRC standard, which is a standard for food safety, created by the British Retail Consortium.

Also, to enter the US market, they comply with the regulations of the hazard analysis and critical points system known as HACCP for its acronym in English (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points).
