Due to climate change and overfishing, the popularity of the anchovy may be short-lived. Peru's fishermen can catch around 20,000 tons a day in about a 3 mile radius. In contrast, a European zone where a ban is in effect through at least 2010, the catch level has been set at between 20,000 and 30,000 tons of adult anchovy. Anchovy stock has enjoyed protected status for the past four years the Bay of Biscay along the western coast of France and the northern coast of Spain. In Peru's Pacific...

By Lehodey, P; Alheit, J; Barange, M; Baumgartner, T; Et al ABSTRACT Fish population variability and fisheries activities are closely linked to weather and climate dynamics. While weather at sea directly affects fishing, environmental variability determines the distribution, migration, and abundance of fish. Fishery science grew up during the last century by integrating knowledge from oceanography, fish biology, marine ecology, and fish population dynamics, largely focused on the great...

The Peru Current flows from South to North along the western side of South America. This current transports colder air from the south northward towards the equator. This current is responsible for bringing cooler waters off the coast of Peru which is a big reason that they have such high fishing success. However this current can get altered during EL-Nino when the warmer waters of the Pacific are transported west to east and start to replace these colder waters. The Peru current is...
