MAZATLÁN.- The Mexican shrimp can continue to be exported to the United States, since México passed the reviews of the Federal Register of the United States of America publishes the 2023 Annual Certification in protection and care of the sea turtle.
In a statement issued by the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Commission, it was explained that this certification ratifies the sustainability and sustainability of fishing, with responsible uses for all species.
It was in April 2021 that the United States withdrew the shrimp export negotiation due to bad fishing practices, since it affected the conservation and protection of sea turtles, for which reason it decided to withdraw it until it is proven that they no longer exist.
In October of that same year, after various inspections, training and adjustments to the shrimp fleets, the certificate returned and has been maintained ever since.
Since last June 9, 2021, the federal authorities published the “Emerging Action Plan implemented by the Government of México for the conservation of sea turtles”, which works to review that each shrimp boat complies with the requirements issued by the United States in conservation matter.
To reach the certification of this 2023, Mexican and American authorities verify vessels in the ports of Topolobampo and Mazatlán in Sinaloa, among its results was an overall rating of 94; They visited El Verde Camacho beach, in Rosario, to publicize the progress.
“Mexican shrimp is sustained for another year, after recovering since October 2021, after being suspended on April 30 of that same year, so this publication in the Federal Register confirms that the sea turtle protection program México is comparable to that of the United States,” Conapesca reported.
With this certification, they explained, more than 107,000 Mexican fishermen and fishermen benefit, on whom more than 430,000 family members depend.
