Ending IUU fishing in Peruvian small-scale fisheries through traceability technology

Description

Peru’s fisheries sector is a key component of the country’s economy and is the second highest generator of foreign currency after mining. However, Peru’s fisheries system is faced with 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 electronic catch documentation and traceability (eCDT) system can contribute to formalization and create economic efficiencies throughout the supply chain.

With OIC support, WWF-Peru will scale 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. TrazApp collects, stores, shares, and visualizes pertinent data in real-time, providing a range of benefits including: improved illegal fishing detection; modernized data management supporting informed decision-making; and transparent fisheries management.

Fishers using TrazApp will gain a better understanding and control over their catch and its commercialization.
