Fishermen Catching Escaped Farmed Shrimp


On September 30, 2015, following a storm with high waves, artisanal fishermen in San Lorenzo (Valle Province) began catching Penaeus vannamei that, presumably, escaped from shrimp farms.  The middlemen who purchased the shrimp from the fishermen say the Honduran Agricultural Health Service (SENASA) and police authorities seized the shrimp, claiming they were stolen from shrimp farms in the area.


The situation is under investigation.
