Mexico is expected to increase its aquaculture production this year, totalizing around 300 000 tonnes of farmed products.
Mexico: As a consequence of this growth, Mexican farmers require fish cages for their shrimp and tilapia farms, among other requirements.
According to a market study recently published by the Export Promotion Bureau of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (ProChile), the Mexican National Comission of Aquaculture and Fisheries (Conapesca) informed a sustained growth around 6 percent in their local fish farming production which is mainly composed by shrimp, tilapia, oyster, clam, lobster and trout.
Besides, Mexico is expected to increase its aquaculture production this year, totalizing around 300 000 tonnes of farmed products with the inclusion of species like abalone and porgy.
The study also says that there is a Programme of Coastal Zoning created by Conapesca which is intended to promote the production of shrimp under alternative techniques such as those using farming cages.
ProChile also explains that if fish cages are all those products under the harmonized tariff code 392310 (boxes, cases, crates and similar articles), Mexico imported US$ 824,404 in fish cages last year, representing a 0.7 percent decrease compared to 2010 but a 25 percent increase compared to 2009. The main supplier country of fish cages in the country is the USA, followed by far by Canada, Germany, Japan, China, Chile and Perú.
