The Tumbes region concentrates 93% of the national shrimp production and exports 59% of the national total, which in 2018 was USD 222 million.
Currently, the main markets for frozen shrimp tails are the US, Spain and Canada, while for whole shrimp are Vietnam, Canada, Spain, South Korea and France. In 2017, progress was made in the access requirements for Peruvian shrimp to Brazil. ■
