Video—Shrimp Industry Employment Numbers


This two-minute, high-definition video, featuring José Antonio Camposano, chief executive of the National Chamber of Aquaculture, reports on the number of jobs created by Ecuador’s shrimp farming industry—180,000 direct and indirect jobs.  The majority of the jobs are in processing plants, where thousands of women in economically depressed areas make a valuable contribution to their families and country.  The video, in English and Spanish with subtitles, contains shots of processing plants and women talking about how grateful they are to have their jobs.
