Tilapia production grows in Panama

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

Tilapia production in Panama has increased in recent years, with over 1 million tonnes harvested in 2012, 94 percent higher than in 2011.

The amount of fish sold last year was 681,053 kilos, 103 per cent higher than that reported in 2011.

Despite the higher production, Juan Achurra, president of the Farmers Association, said the number of producers has declined and many have disappeared in recent years, leaving only large companies.
