According to scientists from the Inidep, the results of the last research campaign into Argentine prawn, the abundance level is similar to that registered last year. The Federal Fishery Council has decided to authorize some research into shrimp in national jurisdiction waters, following the model used last year.

According to the Fishery Undersecretary, sales of shrimp increased by 2% in volume and 8.6% in value, due to the rise of 6.5% in the average price; the volume reported 23,042 tonnes and USD 142,991,000.
