PERU : Peru's fishery exports totaled USD 1,563 million between January and May 2019, thus increasing 24% compared to the same period last year, the Lima Chamber of Commerce (CCL) informed Monday.

According to CCL's Foreign Trade Research and Development Institute (Idexcam) Executive-Director Carlos Posada, China was the main destination for fishery shipments, accounting for 47% of the total (USD 735 million), followed by South Korea (7%, USD 102 million) and the United States (6%, USD 89 million). 

The main products exported during the analyzed period were fishmeal (USD 722 million), frozen giant squid (USD 208 million), fish oil (USD 119 million), and canned giant squid (USD 112 million).

They were followed by frozen shrimps (USD 42 million), jack mackerels (USD 36 million), canned anchovies (USD 17 million), fish fillets (USD 17 million), and canned tuna (USD 13 million). 

Likewise, Idexcam indicated five product lines started exporting to the international market and with rising exported values.

These five products were fresh or frozen jack mackerels (USD 225,639), alive or fresh oysters (USD 205,103), trout fillets (USD 197,610), and tilapias (USD 110,090). 

Although export figures of the above-mentioned products are still low compared to other goods from the same sector, Idexcam pointed out these have begun to generate new trade flows and might be having a good reception in the different markets they have reached.
