SSP and CNA to launch Sustainable Hatchery Management project

Sustainable Shrimp Partnership (SSP) and the National Chamber of Aquaculture (CNA) announce the upcoming launch of a program aimed at sustainable management of hatcheries.

In order to enhance practices in the shrimp aquaculture industry, these organizations have identified the need to establish sustainability guidelines for the first stage in the production chain. For this reason, a improvement project has been formulated, consisting of the implementation and development of good production practices for hatcheries.

This initiative will be presented during AQUAEXPO Santa Elena 2024, which will be held on February 28th at 3:40 PM at the Salinas Golf & Tennis Club. This event aims to provide insight into the efforts to elevate sustainability in larviculture. Attendees will also receive important information about the program’s activities and how they can get involved.

“Through this program, we are innovating as a sector, leading the way for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, and providing a response to climate change. With this initiative, we aim to prepare and support hatcheries during the implementation and development of best production practices that lead to sustainability in the industry,” expressed Pamela Nath, Director of SSP.

Similarly, the Executive President of CNA, José Antonio Camposano,  stated: “The shrimp industry is called to evolve towards more responsible and efficient practices, requiring a collective commitment. For this reason, ensuring sustainable management in hatcheries is vital, as it not only ensures greater organism survival but also significantly contributes to the environmental and social performance of the entire industry.”
