The dynamism that has reappeared in exports of marine products is marked by a 88% increase in the sales of shrimp.
During the first three months of 2013, fishing activities reported the highest economic growth in the country, totaling $38.7 million versus $28.2 million reported in 2012.
Data published by the Comptroller General's Office shows that the increase in fishing activities is due to increased capture of various commercial species, favored by an increase in the international demand for products from industrial fishing. Some segments were more dynamic than others, as in the case of shrimp, reporting a 87.7% increase in exports, compared with the same period in 2012.
Shipping is at an all-time low globally because of the oversupply of ships compared to the amount of products being exported.
You can find "sales" not only at the main stores globally due to the Christmas season, but also because of shipping prices. Less than two weeks ago, for example, the Cargill logistics company rented a Capemax type ship from the Japanese Mitsui OSK Lines company on a round trip via the Cape of Horns at the incredible price of $1000 per day. This same route used to cost between $1864 and $2000 less than a month ago.
