There is a huge development in the shrimp industry, and amazingly it’s gone completely under the radar. Because of a widespread viral infection, the industry has lost tens of millions in the past weeks, and all farms countrywide have had to take steps to start all over again from scratch. The infection was transmitted by birds that harbour around the shrimp farms. That has resulted in extensive layoffs, though we’ve been unable to get exact figures at this time. Today, for the first time, C.E.O. in the Ministry of Agriculture Jose Alpuche spoke on the situation. Credit: http://bit.ly/1HRbMFO
