Weather and disease hamper regional shrimp

Tuesday, February 23, 2016

Central America will not be sending much shrimp to the US in 2016. According to importers from the region, a number of countries are still suffering from the losses caused by disease and poor weather, and the prognosis for 2016 is flat.

Most production in Honduras and Nicaragua is centered around the Gulf of Fonseca. The industry depends on seasonal rains to flush the bay and provide good water movement.
