The capture of juvenile anchoveta puts the natural reproduction of the resource at risk, so it is important that the species reaches maturity and is captured once it has spawned.

It is recalled that the maximum permitted incidental catch of juveniles for this resource is 10%; however, under Supreme Decree 024-2016/Produce, vessels can fish above that limit, even up to 100%, without receiving a fine, as long as they report that catch of juveniles.

In this way, the Institute of the Sea of ​​Peru (Imarpe) performs a technical analysis that leads to the Ministry of Production, who finally decides to apply bans in the areas where the incidence is reported; however, representatives of this union indicate that it is better to end the season since the “minivedas” do not allow the resource to develop.
