IN BRIEF - Only 30% of riparians remain in the shrimp capture

Tuesday, November 30, 2021

Empalme, Sonora.- Two and a half months after the start of the 2021-2022 shrimp season, approximately only 30 percent of the riparian remains in the capture of the resource, and the rest went to the fishing of other species or to seek other employment alternatives.

The president of the Federation of Cooperatives of Empalme Sonora, Gilberto Cota Valdez, said that at this point in the season for most fishermen the activity is no longer profitable, given that the catches are much lower than at the beginning of the season.

He stressed that although production is already much lower than at the start of the season, what compensates for this situation are prices, which is precisely what keeps 30 percent of fishermen still in business.

Cota Valdez explained that as the days go by the shrimp sizes are better, and therefore also the price, so although with few catches, but at least the sea workers obtain a livelihood for their families. He pointed out that to date the prevailing sizes are Under 15, a little under 10, and 16/20, with very acceptable prices in the market.
