“Now there are couple other threats that are out there, contraband that is an issue. We work closely with the Ministry of Agriculture. They are a part of our board. They understand that issue. But we have to work with government and all of the other agencies, customs, to crack it down, because we don’t need that. In the tourism sector the local shrimp is coming back it is high quality.
