Squid: 'That's how you make your homeland'

This column is usually critical, in the use of free expression, both with government entities and with national or foreign private agents. Such an exercise would not be more useful if it did not carry with it a specific proposal to correct that which is disapproved. If we were not able to present solutions, we would only be part of the problem.
What is always more difficult, and therefore infrequent, is to point out positive facts, since it is usually not something to highlight, it is not considered novelty, or it does not give ratings. Contrary to what many practice, the good should be highlighted in the same public way as when we complain. For this reason, I must mention an example of teamwork carried out in the fishing sector in which artisanal fishermen led by the Association of Artisanal Fisheries Shipowners Mar de Paita (APAMARPA), the Institute of the Sea of Peru (IMARPE) and the Peruvian Chamber of the Giant Squid (CAPECAL), put on the Peruvian shirt and carried out, in an orderly manner, with scientific rigor and a great sense of responsibility, Operation Giant Squid 1, to monitor the squid resource in our sea.
This trident allowed a conjunction of experts in extraction, transformation and research of the giant squid. Acknowledgment of the support offered by the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) and the World Wide Fund for Nature should not be bargained for. Thanks to this will of Peruvians with the red-and-white on their chest, it will be possible to advance in the fishing biological knowledge of the species, as well as the relationship of the resource with the environment, which is of vital importance for an adequate, timely and sustainable management. .

"Knowing the high spatio-temporal variability of the population structure, abundance and biology of the giant squid or squid, and its close relationship with the environmental variability of the Peruvian sea, it was necessary to carry out short-term research activities "Eureka or Giant Squid Operations" in the main areas of extraction of the resource, in order to have scientific information that will be added to that collected by IMARPE with its dock registration system and the network of observers on board", declared Martín Salazar, coordinator of the coastal laboratory of IMARPE Paita.
Thus, on May 1, the activity began in eleven artisanal vessels with an observer on board, covering the entire Peruvian coast through fifteen transects parallel to the coast from Paita, in Piura, to Morro Sama, in Tacna; where concentrations of giant squid have historically been recorded. This integration effort culminated on May 12, having as an added value to the investigation, that it was carried out in the middle of Niño Costero 2023. The data is being processed and will allow the authorities of the Ministry of Production to have better elements to dictate the measures management.
In the fishing field, we complained that a specific study on squid was missing and we demanded that it be carried out. If we had only been critical, the problem would have deepened, but action was taken. We will continue to demand more resources to strengthen IMARPE and maintain the level of excellence that corresponds to its scientists, who are the best in the world. We will also prove to be a sector that provides means and solutions to resolve setbacks. This is how homeland is made and homage is paid to our land, of which Enrique López Albújar said that: "It is bigger / more illustrious, more beautiful and more desired / the more distant we are / from the crests of its mountains, from the murmur of its waters."
