LIMA, Sept 15 (Reuters) - Peru's economy grew by a weaker-than-expected 3.77 percent in July from the same month a year ago as a recovery in fishing and surging copper output offset an ongoing slump in construction, state statistics agency Inei said Thursday.

A Reuters poll had forecast a 4.0 percent year-on-year expansion in July, following June's 3.6 percent pace. (Reporting By Teresa Cespedes; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
