Peru has one of the most productive seas in terms of fish production, but other components of this large marine ecosystem are also very important in relation to its functioning. Benthic organisms have a key role in several processes related with organic matter cycling and others aspects of metabolisms of the marine system. Central Perú was sampled in 2007 during Galathea Expedition*. Here, I present a preliminary taxonomic identification** of some forams found in Huacho-Peru, corresponding to 100-300 m depth range.
