Honduras to tackle illegal shrimp farming

Wednesday, March 5, 2014

Honduran authorities are stepping up security measures on shrimp farming after finding cultivation areas without environmental licences.

Those practices put the country's aquaculture industry at risk, a Ministry of Agriculture report said.

The increase in illegal shrimp farms has been caused by a rise in international prices, the Ministry said.
