From the north of Peru to small rivers or lakes in altitude in the Andean Mountains, Peru is a natural paradise for fisheries science.
In the Pacific Ocean, the sea current of Humbolt makes the Peruvian coastline one of the richest in the world. It’s possible to fish groupers, brown meagre, bass, sole and with big-game fishing the famous black marlin which inspired Ernest Hemingway during his stay in Cabo Blanco for his novel “The old man and the sea”.
Freshwater fishery, with a lure or with fly, is practiced especially in the Andes from 2500 meters of altitude. There, we have trout or pejerrey.
