Sharp drop in shrimp exports foreseen due to poor catches in Sinaloa

The size of the product arriving at the fishing piers in Mazatlan is not ideal for sending abroad

Mazatlan -- Shrimp vessels are already completing their first fishing trip at the docks of the port and although some bring regular volumes, production is not favorable because most are landing small shrimp, which will cause exports of the product to fall by 50 %.



There are ships that can bring up to an average of 6 tons, but of those, 4.5 tons are small shrimp and the rest for export ('under') are not considered suitable to send abroad," explains Miguel Rousse Acosta , director of  Productores Mar de México.

The trading company will send this week the first shipment of one million pounds of Mexican shrimp to the United States and faced this problem to complete it.

For this reason, Rousse Acosta estimates that given the decrease in shrimp catches of 50% in the first trip, exports may fall by the same percentage, since the previous season closed with five million pounds.

Sinaloa represents almost 43% of the total shrimp catch in the Pacífic Coast of México

Shrimps larger than 47 grams, once beheaded, are classified in sizes U/15, U/12, U/10, U/8, U/6. The so-called 'unders' are those that are exported abroad. The smallest remain for the Mexican market.

So far, the predominant size in the first thrip has been the U15, which is the smallest of  that group of the “larger ones”.

Rousse Acosta believes that making a second trip will be very complicated, as the market price does not help.

"In the last five years there has been a 40% decrease in terms of value, and about a 52% increase in that same period of the price of marine diesel, basically this is not profitable," explained Miguel Rousse Acosta.

In addition, he reminded that the previous season closed with a fall of USD 2 per pound, but this continued  going down until the price reached a level very similar to the  current one at MXN 250 per kilo, and it is expected to continue falling.
