In 2008, the production of cultivated shrimp was 30 million pounds and 3.195 million pounds of dragged shrimp.

Ervin Sanchez wrote in his article "In fact, according to government information, shrimp exports left the nation a total of $56 million in a season with reduced sales due to the global financial crisis. In this sense, the same thing happened to Nicaraguan lobster production, which reached 2.8 million pounds in 2008, and the export of this product left the country about $40 million."
