Giant Squid / Pota
Peru has a long tradition in the development and use of giant squid biomass. Today from solid banks, the giant squid is caught daily by a large number of craft boats operated by the owner. Over 10,000 fishermen, using the long line of fishing, provide local industry in Paita, as well as other ports, with their daily catch.
Santa Mónica hires and supplies ice for more than 60 craft boats daily. Each boat returns to the dock within 8 hours with its fresh catch. The product is processed immediately in our giant squid plant.
