  • Description

    SYNOPSIS: With the processing industry working flat out to meet a world-wide demand for fish-meal, the fishermen of Peru have been given new hope of prosperity. Although full-scale commercial fishing for anchovies is a long way from its former massive scale the Peruvian fishing and fishmeal industry-now named Pescaperu - is getting back to something like its old productivity.

    Hopes are high that this year, production of fishmeal will be back to something like 60 percent of normal... a target which seemed unlikely even a year ago.

    Canned fish is also helping Peru's export effort. Today, shops like this one from Poland call regularly at Paita...together with others from Panama, the United States and Japan... to load fish products. These are the signs of hope for the fishermen of Peru.

    After the disaster of two years ago, the sea is again rewarding them.
