Peru's tuna exports could reach USD 50 million during the entire 2019, according to the president of the Peruvian Tuna Chamber (CPA), Alfonso Miranda Eyzaguirre.
 
He said exports of frozen and canned tuna reached USD 35 million in 2018.
 
"At the end of 2019, if bureaucratic obstacles are overcome, sales abroad can reach USD 50 million. There is enough raw material and industrial plants to meet those goals," he said.
 
Miranda Eyzaguirre also sees with great optimism that by 2022, tuna exports will exceed USD 100 million.
 
He consideres that in Peru some 50,000 tons of the mentioned marine resource should be processed, but in order to achieve this, the rule that obliges foreign vessel owners who fish for tuna in the Peruvian sea to deliver the catches within a period of one year, must be permanent.

"It is expected that with the 50,000 tons the domestic and foreign market could be served," he said.
 
On the other hand, he indicated that the sales of tuna in the domestic market, in its different modalities, can exceed USD 30 million at the end of this year.
 
"In this area, it is possible to grow even more and for that purpose, the unfair competition of canned goods from industries with subsidies and with complaints complaints about violation of labor and human rights should be avoided," he stated.
 
Finally, he considered that the Selective Consumption Tax (ISC) should be eliminated for the fuel usded by the tuna fleet, as this will help to consolidate the national fishing fleet.

Illegal fishing
 
Furthermore, during his participation in Manta, Ecuador, in the IV Regional Forum of Sustainability of Tuna, organized by the FAO and the Ecuadorian Chamber of Tuna Industrialists and Processors, he pointed out that the value of illegal tuna fishing worldwide reaches USD 26 billion a year.
 
"We must find the way that the proteins and micronutrients of our immense fishing wealth contribute to the nutrition of a large part of the 800 million people who go hungry in the world to banish anemia and other evils derived from the lack of these,"  Eyzaguirre said.
