FOR FISHERIES

Speeches Shim

Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing threatens the sustainability of important artisanal fisheries and associated biodiversity, as well as the livelihoods and resilience of coastal communities. This new partnership will promote sustainable and profitable fishing practices in Ecuador and Peru.

Through a partnership between USAID, a coalition of environmental NGOs led by the Sociedad Peruana de Derecho Ambiental (SPDA), and the Walton Family Foundation (WFF), the Por La Pesca (For Fisheries) project will significantly reduce IUU fishing by artisanal fishing fleets targeting four socio-economically important artisanal fisheries in Peru and Ecuador, including the Galapagos Marine Reserve.
