Which South American country has the largest fishing industry?

Peru
Agerntina
Brazil
Venezuela
Peru has the most pro­duc­tive fish­eries in the world thanks to the currents “Hum­boldt” and “El Niño”, which converge bringing nu­tri­ents-rich water to the surface. Peru's fishing sector led the world during the mid-1960s. The pro­duc­tion since then has fluc­tu­at­ed rad­i­cal­ly because of over­fish­ing. Today, Peru's fishing industry is still the second largest in the world.
