Mauricio Guevara, Secretary of Agriculture and Livestock, told Laprensa.hn that "... the Honduran shrimp sector has become more effective in its production areas and this has allowed it to increase its exports of aquaculture products such as shrimp to the Asian continent."

Victor Wilson, president of the Andah, explained that "... the accreditations of quality standards such as ASC, GlobalGAP and BAP of some packers has allowed them to export to new markets."
