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."
The harvest of shrimp at the end of April reached 80 million pounds, which is equivalent to $150 million.
By sending trade missions to China, participating in exhibitions worldwide and organizing visits to local shrimp plants, the country aims to conquer the Chinese market.
In Honduras, shrimp farmers expect to reach a production of 50 million pounds for 2009.
Despite complaints from local farmers, it has been confirmed that the Mexican government will not restrict the entry of 15 million tons exported annually by Honduras.
