 The Ministry of Production (PRODUCE), through a new decree, ordered the elimination of anchovy discard practice in the sea in order to strengthen the control and monitoring of the that resource capture activity. The regulation (Supreme Decree No. 024-2016-PRODUCE) establishes measures for anchovy conservation and sustainable use, within the framework of the fisheries sector regulation promoted by the Ministry. In addition, it seeks to obtain timely information provided by fishing permit holders and the progressive introduction of automated control and monitoring means for the capture activity.

The provisions set out in this decree are mandatory and applicable to all fishing permit holders that carry out anchovy capture activities, regardless of the destination of said resource. One of the obligations is to register and communicate the Ministry of Production the information about the anchovy capture through the Electronic Logbook or other means implemented by PRODUCE. The decree will make it possible to obtain better information on anchovy juvenile population in order to adopt timely and conservation measures. For example, establishing the closure of fishing zones as well as honesty during the anchovy catch process.
