Yesterday, Wednesday, October 6, the Peruvian Chamber of Giant Squid (CAPECAL) presented a public agreement at the CONXEMAR Fair, in which it commits to face the sustainability challenges faced by the fishery at a national and international level. This was signed between CAPECAL and WWF Peru, days before in the city of Lima. With this agreement, they mark the initial milestone of a path that they hope will have a positive impact on the global squid sector.

CAPECAL is made up of 17 Peruvian processing and exporting companies of giant squid (Dosidiscus gigas), which together represent more than 60% of the value of exports. They have voluntarily partnered in a platform that allows them to articulate efforts with other actors in the governance and value chain of the giant squid fishery.

The companies are aware of the need to promote and participate in the Giant Squid Fishery Improvement Program (FIP- for its acronym in English), in order to turn this fishery into a more sustainable activity. The event counted with the participation of Captain Alberto Arrese, Naval Attaché at the Embassy of Peru in Spain; Juan Luis Manso, responsible for purchases of ALCAMPO and Juan Veites, President of the Confederation of Entrepreneurs of Galicia, who supported this initiative.



In the last two decades, the giant squid has become one of the most important fisheries for direct human consumption in Peru and is one of the highest volume artisanal fisheries in the world - with the participation of a registered fleet of more 2,500 artisanal vessels. This fishery generates an enormous economic and social impact for Peru, achieving export values ​​of over 850 million dollars in 2019.

"We can expect from CAPECAL in the coming years a total commitment to promoting the giant squid improvement project in Peru",
says Gerardo Carrera, President of CAPECAL.

CAPECAL's founding companies are Pacific Freezing Company, Sabanamar Pacífico, Océano Seafood, Peruvian Sea Food, Transmarina del Perú, Refrigerados Fisholg e Hijos, Marfrío Perú, COINREFRI, Produmar, Perupez, Seafrost, Fernández, Altamar foods, Dexim, Sakana, Peru Frost and PROANCO.


“Since the launch of the FIP in 2107, they have been taking steps forward and joining forces. The commitment of the Peruvian industry is materialized with the formation of CAPECAL, which will be a key player in the success of the FIP"
, Says Carmen González-Valles Martínez, Director of Market Links at Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP).

Alfonso Miranda, President of CALAMASUR, highlighted the commitment of the Peruvian fishing sector for the sustainable use of the main species of cephalopods in the world, caught entirely by artisanal fishermen in the country.

It is worth mentioning that the CAPECAL initiative was formed with the support of SFP.
