Peru: Drones and monitors to be used to combat illegal fishing


The Ministry of Production (PRODUCE) has decided to invest in technology to strengthen the fight against illegal and trawling fishing within the first five miles of the Peruvian sea, through the use of drones and monitors. Use of drones will allow to make an accurate evaluation of what is happening in the Peruvian sea for the corresponding actions. The Ministry is also considering acquisition of vessels to strengthen supervision tasks, especially to prevent foreign ships from invading Peruvian territory. These actions will be implemented in coordination with the Peruvian Navy, as of the second half of this year in the north of the country.
