Soybean Manufacturers Help Ecuador Shrimp Farmers Gain Certification

27 March 2015, at 12:00am

ECUADOR - US soybean manufacturers are helping shrimp farms in Ecuador to achieve GLOBALG.A.P. Certification to get better conditions in the main markets.

The US Soybean Export Council (USSEC) is supporting aquafeed mills and farms that consume US soybean meal in different Latin American countries.

USSEC’s support with the certification aims to benefit both parties by increasing the shrimp farmers' consumption of US soybean meal.

USSEC consultant Jairo Amezquita visited seven shrimp farms and the National Aquaculture Chamber (CNA) in Guayaquil, Ecuador to offer participation in USSEC’s certification program and to discuss the details and requirements for program inclusion.

Three shrimp farm members of the National Aquaculture Chamber will start working with USSEC on the process of achieving GLOBALG.A.P. Certification.

In 2014, Ecuador produced close to 280,000 metric tonnes of shrimp, which translates to a production of more than 500,000 tonnes of feed and a potential of consumption of 180,000 tonnes of US soybean meal.
