The tropical current has temperatures that surpass the 20 degrees required for the existence of completely different species and ecosystems, such as mangroves, whose southern distribution limit in the Eastern Pacific is here.
Whether working directly with fishermen, authorities or companies, WWF Peru fosters marine biodiversity conservation initiatives, such as efficient management of marine protected areas,
as well as best spatial planning practices for infrastructure activities within the coast. Moreover, the WWF marine program promotes the sustainability and transparency of industrial fishing, including that of anchoveta (Engraulis ringens), mahi-mahi (Coryphaena hippurus), and
other key fisheries through a market transformation approach that prompts responsibility in extractive and productive activities.
