He said that Honduras surpassed the former leader, Ecuador, earlier this year.
The country, one of the world leaders in fresh tilapia production, foresees a 10% increase in its exports for 2009.
With a total of $60 million worth of tilapia fillet exported, Honduras has surpassed Ecuador as the largest supplier to the U.S.
The country is already the world's leading exporter of tilapia fillets, which have now begun to sell well in Mexico and Canada.
Tilapia exporters expect to top their current sales of $60 million a year once the agreement with the European Union becomes a reality.
