Shrimp Exports in January 2014


According to a report by the Central Bank of Ecuador, in January 2014, Ecuador exported 20,000 metric tons of shrimp (more than 40 million pounds), 29.7 percent more than in January 2013, when 15,000 tons were exported.  The increase was due to higher demand from France and the strengthening of new markets in China and South Korea.  The January 2014 shrimp exports were worth $186, up 97.6 percent from January 2013.
