Farmed Shrimp Exports to China


The Peruvian government recently inking an agreement with China, which will allow its shrimp exports to reach $150 to $200 million by 2018.  This could be a big win for Camposol Holding, whose shrimp farming division, Marinasol, is the country’s largest shrimp producer.  In the second quarter of 2017, Marinasol’s shrimp production rose 20% to $20 million from the first quarter of 2017, while its gross profit jumped almost tripled to $2.78 million.


Camposol CFO Andres Colichon Sas said investments in shrimp farming have been focused mainly on transforming traditional ponds into intensive ponds.  He said, “Intensive ponds operate as a greenhouse for agriculture” in which most factors are controlled with new technologies.  “We are progressing towards that little by little,” he added.
