Peru has aquatic animal health requirements for imports of live aquatic animals for all end uses.

Canada is currently in negotiation with Peru for export certification of live aquatic animals for all end uses (including live lobster for human consumption). For these specific commodities, until such time as a negotiated certificate is available, shipments exported without an aquatic animal health certificate may be detained in Peru.

Important Notes:

  • There may be existing certificates or additional information from the Fish and Seafood program. However, for the specific commodities above, an aquatic animal health certificate is required.
  • If you require any other information on aquatic animal health export certification, please contact your CFIA Area Office.
