Yucatecan aquaculture producers harvested 37 million ornamental organisms that represented revenues of 17 million pesos in the last year, making this activity an economic alternative for the sector.
“The cultivation of fish and ornamental plants has led Yucatan to remain the leading exporter thanks to the high demand in our country and abroad, because they are attractive for children and adults” said the head of Rural Development (Seder ), Pablo Castro Alcocer.
According to the most recent report, so far in 2018, 23 million units of different species have already been produced in the territory, so it is expected that the closing of this year will be highly positive for this industry.
Such is the leading role of the state in this sector, that the nursery of ornamental fish and aquatic plants “Emmanuel“, in Hunucmá Yucatán, is considered the largest of its kind and the main exporter in all of Latin America.
Castro Alcocer stressed that this company has been exporting large quantities of living organisms (fish and plants) to several countries throughout the world, since it has the certificate of good practices of the National Service of Health, Safety and Food Quality (Servicio Nacional de Sanidad, Inocuidad y Calidad Agroalimentaria: Senasica).
In Yucatan there are three aquaculture units and 16 producers dedicated to this industry, who in addition to selling to oter Mexican states, export to Germany, Belize, Georgia, Singapore and the United States, the latter being the largest consumer.
The secretary indicated that among the various species produced in the state, there are angelfish, comet, telescope, demekin, shubunkin, lion’s head, dragon eye, bubble eye, pearl scale and phoenix, to name a few.
Finally, he said that the government of the State works together with producers of different economic activities of the rural sector to promote or reactivate projects that, in the short, medium or long term, will improve the economy of their families in several Yucatecan communities.
