Following pro-market policies, the Peruvian state has aimed to regulate profitable fisheries and aquaculture activities to increase production. However, informal and illegal activities persist and are interlinked with formal practices and frameworks, creating intertwined realities in fostering processes of institutional hybridization. In this guest lecture, Gerardo Damonte will be presenting us with an analysis of the (re)production of informal and illegal activities by explaining the formation of hybrid institutional entanglements in two case studies: the Peruvian anchoveta fishery and the Peruvian bay scallop aquaculture industry in Sechura. This analysis has recently been published in the journal Maritime Studies https://doi.org/10.1007/s40152-023-00309-1
