The objective of the Aquaculture Symposium in Guatemala is to share with the world the progress and successes achieved in the Guatemalan aquaculture sector, as well as learn about the most relevant achievements, challenges and trends of other regions to continue strengthening this industry in the country.
In the region, Guatemala is distinguished by developing hyper-intensive shrimp production systems with stocking densities of up to 600 shrimp / m² and reaching productivity of up to 60,000 pounds / Ha / cycle (90 days), which makes Guatemala one of the most successful industries with hyperintensive shrimp systems worldwide, using innovative production practices and modern pond designs. Likewise, the Guatemalan aquaculture industry is estimated to grow in the short term (5 years) by 10% and in the medium term (10 years) by 15%, driven by global population growth and the growing demand for healthy foods.
