The executive president of the National Aquaculture Chamber (CNA for its Spanish acronym) José Camposano traveled to Guangzhou, China, to participate in a seminar on white shrimp with the aim of promoting the increase of exports to Asia. Camposano said that it is expected that shrimp exports to that market increase from 9% to 12% this year.
Asia is the main export destination of Ecuadorian shrimp. From January to September 2017, 389.5 million pounds were sold, a figure that represents 57% of the total exports of this product according to CNA statistics. (I)
