Aquaculture industry continues to grow

The aquaculture industry has been growing at a rate of 14 per cent annually over the last six years, establishing itself as one of the main productive activities which consequently employs a vast majority of people throughout the country, said the Deputy Minister of Fisheries, Maria Isabel Talledo.

"Aquaculture is becoming an industry of great importance. In 2009, just over 44,000 metric tonnes was harvested, of which 16,000 tonnes were scallops," she said.

Meanwhile, there were approximately 13,000 tonnes of trout being farmed and a further 1,000 tonnes of tilapia were harvested.

"Last year, the total volume of farmed fish being sold in domestic markets was 16,000 tonnes, of which trout represented 74 per cent of that figure. On the other hand, shrimp was the most exported product," said Tallo.

The Vice Minister stressed that this data shows that Peruvian aquaculture is growing at an astonashing rate, reports the news agency Andina.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the Association of Exporters' (ADEX) Fisheries and Aquaculture Committee, Henry Quiroz, said the central government and the private sector seek to position Peru as one of the main countries which is providing fish through aquaculture.

"Population growth, new technologies, globalization and the extraordinary business conditions are all a sufficient incentive to aim for larger and more demanding markets, so we can open new market boundaries which have only been accessible to first world countries," he said.

Quiroz also believes that government measures taken in recent years to encourage increased domestic aquaculture have helped.

In total, Peru exported USD 125 million worth of aquaculture products last year, and Quiroz estimates that the aquaculture market will grow by a further 15 per cent this year, which will increase the total income to USD 155 million.
