First Harvest of 2015


A Google Translation: By mid-May, seven companies, several cooperatives and one hundred sixty individual shrimp farms, located in the Delta del Estero Real and on the Gulf of Fonseca, expect their first harvest of the year.  Ismael Wong, general manager of the group Joy Deli Sea Aquaculture Torrecillas, said that last year the farms produced 70 million pounds of shrimp and that they expect to produce up to 90 million pounds in 2015.  He added that the farms generate 40,000 direct and indirect jobs, many of them at the processing plant in Chinandega.
