The National Fisheries and Aquaculture Committee set a temporary fishing ban for all shrimp species in the Mexican Pacific Ocean beginning Friday, March 15.

The ban will take place in the estuarine lagoon systems, marshlands and bays located in the states of Southern Baja California, Sonora, Sinaloa, Nayarit, Jalisco and Colima, as well as in the marine waters having federal jurisdiction in the Pacific Ocean.

The measure aims to protect the breeding population of commercially important shrimp species during the 2019 reproductive period and ensure the recruitment and continuity of their populations and their sustainable use in the next season 2019-2020.

Shrimp fishing in the Pacific Ocean and Gulf of California is one of the commercial fisheries of greater economic and social relevance in Mexico so it is necessary to manage and regulate it to ensure its sustainability and maximize its economic benefits.

Shrimp from the Pacific Ocean

For setting the ban, the National Aquaculture and Fisheries Commission (CONAPESCA) took into account the studies carried out by the National Institute of Fisheries and Aquaculture (INAPESCA), which indicated that brown and blue shrimp stocks from the Pacific Ocean coastline have abundance fluctuations, reflecting subsequent recruitments that contribute to the remaining population present at the end of the fishing season. For this reason, scientists considered it necessary to avoid fishing after March 15, 2019, for the conservation of the breeding population.

 

Start of the shrimp ban in the Pacific

On the other hand, the environmental conditions analyzed on the trends of sea surface temperature and oceanographic dynamics (movement of water masses in the Pacific Ocean and reduction of the El Niño phenomenon towards normality), as well as their relationship with availability of shrimp species by region, indicate the need to take precautionary measures regarding the recruitment of white and blue shrimp species.

The fishing ban for all shrimp species will be implemented in the estuarine lagoon systems, marshes and bays located in the states of Baja California Sur, Sonora, Sinaloa, Nayarit, Jalisco and Colima, as well as in the marine waters of federal jurisdiction of the Pacific Ocean, from the border with the United States to the border with Guatemala.
