Aquaculturists lose 75 pct of shrimp production

GUATEMALA

Shrimp producers have estimated a decline in production of around 75 per cent due to the tropical storm Agatha, which hit the country two months ago. It is consider that recovery of the sector will take more than a year, because it damaged the infrastructure, crop pools and killed many shrimp.
 
According to the Director of Competitiveness for the Guatemalan Association of Exporters (Agexport), Fanny D. Estrada, shrimp plants were not only affected by the storm but also by the Pacaya volcano ash.
 
Those most affected are the producers in the south coast, where the storm was strongest, said Estrada.
 
According to the assessment made by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), the damage caused losses to fisheries, farming and livestock at a cost of GTQ 646.7 million (USD 79.2 million). Of that total, GTQ 621.1 (USD 76 million) was in private hands, said Siglo XXI.
 
The estimated damage and losses are:
 
Dredging of ponds: GTQ 1.4 million (USD 171 500) 
Tilapia fingerlings: GTQ 1.2 million (USD 147,000); 
Baby shrimp: GTQ 21.5 million (USD 2.6 million); 
Food: GTQ 200,000 (USD 24 500); 
Artisanal fishing: GTQ 12.1 million (USD 1.4 million). 
 
These negative results also adversely affected the balance of payments, lower exports and imports and losses of GTQ 96.8 million (USD 11.8 million).
 
In addition, the tropical storm changed the way of operating shrimp sales for Guatemalan business'.
 
"Before we used 70 per cent of the proceeds for domestic crops and the remainder was for imports. Now this has reversed: 80 per cent is for imported (5,000 GTQ per day) and the rest is national," said Jorge Cabezas, general manager of the Integrated Meat Industries (ICI), a company attached to Wal-Mart Central America.
