Fishmeal, fishing, Peru, Chimbote, climate change
Peru is the biggest fishmeal-producing country in the world. It has exported millions of tons of fishmeal to various parts of the world since the 1960s. However, this industry has created many problems for the Peruvian people and their environment. Past research done on this topic has failed to include the negative impacts of the fishmeal industry. My project aims to exhibit the main issues that are affected or created by the fishmeal industry. I will talk about its impact on socioeconomic matters such as malnutrition and employment, as well as its impact on the environment and the wildlife population of Peru’s coast. Data shows that the reduction of the importance of the fishmeal industry will have a positive societal and environmental impact on Peru. The socioeconomic and ecological impacts due to the excessive fishmeal catch are the predominant issues that require attention in order to restructure the industry.
