INACTIVE Peru mahi-mahi - longline (Confremar)

Primary tabs

Overview

Reason for Inactivity 
Missed two consecutive reports

Mahi-mahi is a favorite for consumers due to its firm texture and mild taste.  This FIP is an investment in the artisanal longline fishery in Peru, which fishes the offshore population stock in the southeastern Pacific Ocean.  Mahi-mahi (Coryphaena hippurus, also known as Dorado and Perico) is a migratory and rapidly reproducing fish species found throughout the warmer waters of the world's oceans and around the 23°C isotherm in waters.  The stock is managed by the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC) and the Peru fleet is governed by federal fishery rules, which includes a minimum landing size.  Using the MSC standard as a guide, the FIP will encourage robust catch reporting and more sustainable fishing practices.
