Fishing opportunities: Multisectoral workshop to strengthen the Amazon fish value chain

On October 26 and 27, a multi-stakeholder workshop was held in the city of San Lorenzo, as part of the implementation of bio-businesses with native communities of the Datem Wetlands Project.

Profonanpe organized the “Multi-stakeholder workshop: fishing opportunities” in the city of San Lorenzo, Datem del Marañón province, in order to present the proposed actions and gather perceptions on the use and commercialization of Amazonian fish– from the territory and experience of the associations, private and state actors with a specific role in the development of the artisanal fishing value chain.



The event brought together various stakeholders involved in sustainable development opportunities for artisanal fisheries in the Loreto region and was attended by representatives of the Provincial Municipality of Datem del Marañón, UNAP, IIAP, WCS, ORKAMUKADIP, ITP, Maynas Productive Site, Ahuashiyacu Fishery-Aquaculture Center, Sanipes, Direpro Loreto, Katinbaschi and Kachizpani Artisanal Fishermen Associations, La Patarashca and Despensa Amazónica.


During the meeting, the need for the creation of an inter-institutional technical roundtable for the management and contributions to the Amazonian artisanal fishing activity of the Pastaza corridor was discussed. Also, on the second day of the workshop, a guided visit was made to the San Fernando and Musa Karusha communities, where the Kachizpani and Katinbaschi artisanal fishermen’s associations have strengthened their management and marketing of fresh artisanal fish through the installation of two solar-powered ice production plants.



At the end of the workshop, WCS indicated that they will carry out awareness campaigns on fishing regulations and closed seasons, while the UNAP will intensify and seek alliances for research with young biologist graduates. Likewise, Direpro Loreto and Sanipes committed to support fishing activities and Maynas Site confirmed its support in technology transfer. Finally, Profonanpe concluded that the formalization processes of the control and surveillance committees of the Rimachi Lake and Huytoyacu Lake fisheries management programs would be completed.
