Fishing quotas
Description
Set season\'s catch quota, raising it from last year\'s multi-year low.
Notes
PERU – fishing quotas: The government has set this season’s catch quota well above last season’s multi-year low. The higher quota is expected to allow fishmeal/oil production and exports to partially recover from last year’s depressed level (see MPPU Dec.’12).
