A cancellation of the second anchovy fishing season later this year in Peru's key north-central waters could force companies out of business and leave thousands of industry workers without income for up to 90 days, Pablo Trapunsky, CEO of fisheries and fishmeal processing giant Pesquera Diamante told Pesca y Medio Ambiente (Fisheries and Environment) magazine.

"In the end, we don't see this worrying authorities. They are only looking at the part of the fishing sector that complains the most," Trapunsky said.
