Concha de Abanico
Some genetic variation was found among the three Peruvian populations studied but there is a lack of significant genetic structure. The main natural beds are in Sechura Bay, Samanco Bay and Independencia Bay (Marín et al. 2013). Occasional assessments were performed in the Island Lobos de Tierra in 2009 (Galloso et al. 2016) and in the Independencia Bay in 2012 (Flores et al. 2015). In lack of a national or regular assessment, a management unit within Peruvian waters is here considered.
Main beds along the Peruvian coast: bays of ‘Mejillones del Sur’, ‘La Rinconada’, ‘Sechura’ and ‘Independencia’ (Avendaño and Cantillánez 2008; Argüelles et al. 2011).
