Peruvian sea is one of the most productive worldwide; many activities that create jobs for hundreds of coastal communities and industries depend on it. However, in recent years they have faced several threats that put them at risk.
What is the issue?
What is WWF doing?
In the same way, we have developed a digital system that allows us to trace the route of a product from its straction to the final consumer in order to ensure its traceability, called TrazApp. This system is currently being implemented at a pilot level, which will allow the parties involved to be brought together, strengthening the generation, exchange, and transfer of essential information for fishing traceability, contributing to the sustainability and transparency of artisanal fishing sector. These efforts began as a result of the new demands in international markets.
2. WWF has signed collaboration agreements with the main institutions responsible for the management and research of the fishing sector such as non-profit organizations like Future of Fish, authorities such as PRODUCE, SANIPES, DICAPI, Regional Governments, and the private sector with whom they have been collaborating to improve the sustainability of the sector.
3. The collaboration of 8 processing and exporting companies have been consolidated in the parakeet FIP through the alliance “Peru Mahi Alliance”, which represents almost 80% of the exports to the United States of America, the main international market. The companies have been implementing activities within an annual action plan, such as training programs on good fishing practices.
4. “Departure certificates” generated by the DICAPI have been integrated into the TrazApp so that they can be requested virtually and issued digitally, facilitating the procedures for artisanal fishers.
