Sinaloa.- Minimum quantities that go of the 600 kilos at 2 tons shrimp record the fishing fleet that participates in the crustacean catching season in Mazatlán.

The little product that shrimp boats currently extract is unloaded at the fishing docks when they return due to some decomposition.

Jesús Omar Lizárraga Manjarrez, president of the Union of Shipowners of the Pacific Coast, acknowledged that there is uncertainty among the fishing sector after the catches that have been registered in the first two weeks of the shrimp harvest.

“Catches, in this 2021-2022 shrimp season, have been relatively low.”

He assured that since the beginning of the harvest, the larger vessels reported that the catches were well below the average of other years and with a downward trend.

There is concern

He said that the low production of shrimp keeps the workers of the sea in anxiety, mainly the owners of the boats, who do not know if they will be able to pay the operating costs of the boats, which managed to leave the fishing season, despite the shortage of inputs used by each vessel, including marine diesel.

Lizárraga Manjarrez specified that they will wait for the boats to return after a complete trip to determine if the crustacean catch they have since September 21 is good.

Reviews follow

After the review made by the United States delegation to the proper use of the turtle excluders, he indicated that the inspections will continue by the local and national authorities.

The president of the Union of Shipowners of the Pacific Coast said that they are awaiting the results of the US representative, to determine if they regain the certification to export shrimp to the neighboring country to the north.

He said that the review of the excluders will continue by the National Aquaculture and Fisheries Commission, the Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection and the Secretary of the Navy.

The date

On September 21, the shrimp harvest season began on the high seas, where 50 percent of the country’s fishing fleet participates due to the scarce resources to be able to pay the expenses that a vessel requires to be able to participate in the harvest.
