Eight Million Dollars for Shrimp Farming


The Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (Sagarpa) is going to invest $8 million to help the shrimp farming industry in northwestern Mexico recover from early mortality syndrome.


The head of Sagarpa, Enrique Martinez y Martinez, announced the creation of a national advisory committee to help manage aquaculture and coordinate actions to support shrimp farmers.  Sagarpa also confirmed the construction of a hatchery and an experimental farm to give certainty to the sector.


Sagarpa clarified that these resources are not part of the National Disaster Fund (Fonden) and are to be immediately granted without bureaucratic procedures to shrimp farmers.
