In 2013 exports of fish products reached an all-time high, recovering strongly from the decline observed in 2012. As usual, the performance of the shrimp and squid fisheries strongly determines the overall value of exports. Low export prices (except for shrimp) and high costs have put pressure on the fishing sector. The global financial crisis is still affecting traditional export markets and new markets are demanding products at lower prices.
