The Peruvian sea is one of the richest on earth in which a series of factors converge that make it possible to develop a truly exceptional fauna that has led Peru to become a fishing power.
This variety of fauna and flora is due to different factors that make a favorable environment for this variety. Among these factors we have:
The Coldness of its Waters (the waters of the Peruvian Sea are cold, despite the fact that we are in a tropical area. This event is due to a phenomenon called outcrop, which consists in the elevation of deep waters to the surface, attributed to mineral and organic salts, which make up the phytoplankton chlorophyll), the abundance of phytoplankton (phytoplankton is composed of plant microorganisms and microscopic algae, which serve as food for zooplankton or microscopic animals. Both serve as food for small and medium-sized fish , which at the time is the food of large fish. Phytoplankton and zooplankton, known in Peru as plankton, make our sea have a green color, for this reason we have an abundance and variety of our ichthyological fauna ), the width of the Continental Base (The width of the continental base represents a decisive factor for the abundance of fish in our sea. In the Co his Central, between the Illescas Peninsula and the Paracas Peninsula, its shallow depth (less than 200 m.), facilitates the introduction of solar rays, which are used by plankton to carry out photosynthesis, which substances inorganic are transformed into organic substances that serve as food for fish).
And finally the convergence of Corrientes Marina (the convergence of cold and hot waters is a fundamental factor for the diversification of marine fauna, since for this reason in the Peruvian Sea we can find fish from tropical waters, fish from temperate waters and fish cold water). We have a great variety of fish such as: anchovy, pejerrey, bonito, tuna, cojinova, corvina, etc .; as well as rich in squid, crustaceans and molluscs.
It should be noted that both in the Sierra and in the Jungle of Peru, we have a variety of fish species, some from hatcheries such as trout or others from the river such as carachama, not much is known about these species because they are directly exported and not they are disseminated with great emphasis in Peru.
With these resources, the Peruvian as an ingenious man who elaborates delicious gastronomic dishes, which are rich in proteins, a vital substance for every human being who provides us with energy, who over time became famous and crossed borders and are currently recognized throughout Peru , and approved by the different most demanding palates that exist.
Tribute to our marine wealth, our design will be called "Backpack Peru Fish Purple"
