Guajaca Shrimp Company

 

So far in 2013, Guajaca Shrimp Company, a 71-hectare, 48-pond, shrimp farm in Holguin Province, has produced 300 metric tons of shrimp.  The ponds yield six tons per hectare, and 73 percent of the crop is larger than 14 grams.  Susana Barroso Garcia, an executive at Guajaca, said “...We still have three ponds to be harvested by the end of November.”  The shrimp are marketed internationally.
