Peru’s fisheries sector is a key component of the country’s economy and the second-highest foreign currency generator after mining. However, Peru’s fisheries system faces regulatory problems - most fishing vessels are “informal” and fall under the IUU category due to the lack of documentation and registration. Fortunately, the application of an electronic catch documentation and traceability (eCDT) system can contribute to formalization and create economic efficiencies throughout the supply chain.
WWF-Peru scales up the use of "TrazApp", a traceability system that allows users to follow the route of the fish in the different stages of the production chain. After over one year of OIC support, here are the midpoint achievements and milestones of WWF-Peru.
