While prices of the larger-sized crustaceans have decreased due to the global crisis, small and medium sized shrimp prices are stable, so expectations for exporting that amount of production are good.
Shrimp industrialization plants have increased their payrolls in recent weeks to more than 2 thousand new employees.
The article in Hondudiario.com reported statements by Jacobo Paz, president of the National Association of Farmers of Honduras (ANDH), who noted that "the industry at its peak time, June 15 to October 15, generates some 10-thousand direct jobs between shrimp harvesting and processing."
This year the Association of Aquaculture is projecting an increase of 25% in exports.
Elheraldo.hn reports on its website: "Jacobo Paz, the representative of the Association of Aquaculture, said that "the industry has increased productivity due to increased sowing and added value which improves prices."
