The closure of shrimp fisheries is extended for 15 days, until August 31, 2019, and covers the area stretching from the border with the United States, in Tamaulipas, to the mouth of the Coatzacoalcos River.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (SADER), through the National Commission of Aquaculture and Fisheries (CONAPESCA), established the modification of deadlines and closed areas for the capture of all shrimp species in marine waters and lagoon systems estuarines in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea during 2019.

The measure was published in the Official Gazette of the Federation (DOF) and it specifies that the area streteches from the border with the United States, in Tamaulipas, to the mouth of the Coatzacoalcos River.



CONAPESCA's decision is based on the technical opinion RJL / INAPESCA / DGAIPA / 848/2019 of July 26, 2019, issued by the National Institute of Fisheries and Aquaculture (INAPESCA), which establishes that the closed period for the brown shrimp (Farfantepenaeus aztecus) “to be extended until August 31, 2019 to ensure that the catch obtained during the first seasonal trip is composed of 81% or more organisms of commercial category 26/30.” This would allow better reproduction and performance.

The shrimp fishery in the northern area of ​​the Gulf of Mexico, particularly in the state of Tamaulipas, is the most important in the region from a social and economic point of view, and the predominant species in the catch is the brown shrimp, which contributes 90% of the production.

Likewise, the states of Tamaulipas and Veracruz provide 74% of the total shrimp production in the Gulf of Mexico; the first state provides 59% and the second, 15%.

The average annual shrimp catch in both states, during the last decade, has been almost 15,000 tonnes, which come from lagoon systems, as well as offshore.

The establishment of closed areas and periods is an important management and administration instrument for species of fishing interest that are relevant on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea.
