Fishery Development Blueprint: Benthic

Domestic Market Initiatives in the Peruvian Benthic Fishery

As is the case with any complex system, there is no one silver bullet solution that will solve overexploitation of fishery resources. A coordinated effort is needed across multiple domains from governance to trade. We believe developing new market initiatives is a critical component of this approach, to incentivize supply chain actors to practice responsible harvesting and sourcing which would unlock trapped value.

This document outlines recommendations and strategies for unlocking new or additional value in managed access benthic fisheries connected with Peruvian domestic markets, and for setting enabling conditions for value to be created or unlocked in the future.
