For his part, the President of the Peruvian Society of Gastronomy, Bernardo Roca Rey, called attention to the care of water, which has been a source of inspiration, life and nutrition for Peruvians. "The ancient cultures as Caral, Paracas, Moche, Chimú, Central Coast, had a close relationship with our hydro-biological species, as demonstrated in their pottery and mantles, so it is the responsibility of all Peruvians know to preserve them for future generations. The aquarium of Produce and Mistura is a big step for awareness, he said.

AQUARIUS: THE ROUTE Upon entering the exhibition, visitors can watch a video presentation on the characteristics of the Peruvian sea and its importance; similarly, the dangers, risks, and consequences of predation, nutrition and food security. We will also present best practices for the care of the sea. Later, when touring the aquarium, you will appreciate the pools and cones containing aquatic resources and then go to the virtual area.

Also, there is a graphical explanation of the relationship between the Peruvians with the sea through history. Upon completion of the route, attendees will taste various dishes made of anchovy, the main marine species of our sea. Also educational material will be handed and photo exhibits will be on display.
