Tracing the journey of squid—a $500 million industry in Peru—hundreds of miles from home isn’t as simple as it seems.

In Part III of our series, host Ruxandra Guidi and reporter Simeon Tegel return to Lima, Peru, to hear from officials and NGOs on how sustainability could be improved. Voices in this episode include Cpt. Jesus Menacho of the Peruvian Coast Guard and Alfonso Miranda, the president of Calamasur. They speak to Carlos Martín Salazar at the Instituto del Mar del Perú about ways to improve sustainability with data. And finally, they hear from Patricia Majluf, a well-known conservationist and senior scientist at Oceana, who dared to take on the fishing industry and rein in overfishing as a former Peruvian vice minister of fisheries.

About The Catch:  The next time you order up some calamari, stop for a minute and think. Where does this actually come from? This summer, Foreign Policy is partnering with the Walton Family Foundation to bring you a new podcast: The Catch. Each episode offers a behind the scenes look at the current state of global fishing by tracking squid—from the waters off the coast of Peru to the processing plants, all the way to the restaurants, and finally to your plate. Join us as we learn what squid tells us about the state of our oceans. Follow and listen to The Catch wherever you get your podcasts.  See All Episodes
