Mexico/Honduras

Correction—No Import Ban on Honduran Shrimp by Mexico

 

On July 30, 2015, Shrimp News posted and item that said Mexican shrimp farmers have urged the government to ban imports of Honduran shrimp over allegations that Honduras has early mortality syndrome (EMS).

 

According to Jacobo Paz, Honduran Secretary of Agriculture and Livestock: “No formal communication has been received from the Mexican authorities related to any ban on Honduras product.  The Mexican Animal Health Direction (SENASICA) sent a questionnaire to its Honduran counterpart, SENASA, which was sent back to Mexico on time with the proper information.  The Honduran Ambassador in Mexico has sent us a report related to a meeting held yesterday [July 30, 2015] in Mexico City.  The final resolution was that no ban for Honduran shrimp would take place.  We plan to continue working with the Mexican authorities...to provide any information regarding...shrimp production in Honduras.”
