Peruvian exports from the traditional and non-traditional fishing sector reached US$2.560 billion in the first nine months of the year, representing a 48% increase over the same period in 2016, according to the management of Extractive Services and Industries of the Exporters Association (ADEX according to its acronym in Spanish).

The traditional sub-sector had the greatest growth (57.7%), reaching US$1.716 billion.

Fish flour was the main product, reaching US$1.428 billion, with a share of 83.2% and 64.4% growth, most likely due to a larger catch of anchovies.
