Sinaloa—Pre-Filters Proposed for All Shrimp Ponds

 

To prevent the introduction of other species into shrimp ponds, The Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (SAGARPA) in the state of Sinaloa has proposed standards for the use of Aquatic Animal Exclusion Systems.

 

According to the proposed standards, all shrimp farmers in Sinaloa would have to install nylon, net-bag filters (at least 25-meters long with a mesh size of 300 to 500 microns) at the inlets to their farms.  The components of the filtering system would have to be cleaned regularly and kept in good condition.
