The president of the Federation of Fisheries Cooperatives of the Central West of the State, José Luis Carrillo Galáz, declared that this February is the last month of the lobster season, which capture period began on July 1, 2018 and fiishes on March 1st.
He said that about 550 tons of lobster have already been caught, the kilo has an average price of 550 pesos, and they expect to reach 600 tons, a similar figure to what was captured in 2018; however, if the heat continues during the month of February, they could capture more of these crustaceans, which will result in a good economic income to more than 2 thousand fishermen and their families.
Carrillo Galáz stressed that fortunately there is good weather for the following days, since the cold fronts left 12 thousand fishermen inactive for several days during the month of January.
He affirmed that only 2 thousand fishermen from the municipalities of the east of the state who are dedicated to the capture of lobster are currently active, they do not enter the Temporary Employment program because they are still working at sea, however, 12,000 fishermen are inactive, and they will receive a monthly fee of $1,500 pesos for the months of February and March through the State Government as part of the Temporary Employment program.
He said that from April 1, 2018 to January 31, 2019, 6,000 tons of grouper were caught, leaving 900 million pesos of income. While 35,435 tons of octopus were also seized for an economic spill of 4.2 billion pesos.
