Boycott Peru, Destruction of Anchovy Fisheries from Overfishing & Heavy Pollution
PERU: El Nino and overfishing are destroying anchovies, one of the world’s largest fisheries. The small species is used to feed pigs in China and the United States as well as for farm raised salmon in Chile and Canada. Pollution is also a huge problem. Dead zones from industrial pollution are making the costal areas fish free. Only two percent of Peru’s trash is recycled. The rest is burned or dumped into the oceans. Send their government and fishing industries a message. Clean it up and quit selling anchovies to feed other animals. On Earth Day- Boycott Peru and make them pay for their environmental crimes.
