Our Statement

Authentic Mexican Shrimp is your guarantee of quality, consistency and a commitment to environmental accountability.

Seafood Sustainability The Mexican Shrimp Council, in cooperation with Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Mexican fishermen, promote long term sustainability and socio economic balance in the Gulf of California and throughout the farms and waters of Mexico. Both wild and farm shrimp industries are highly regulated and managed for the long term. In this regard, we are committed to the protection of endangered marine life, promotion sustainable fishing and farming practices, and the enhancement of coastal ecosystems that fish, wildlife and coastal communities depend on.

As part of our commitment to sustainable fishing practices and marine wildlife protection, the Mexican Shrimp Council has sponsored independent assessments on the status of the Gulf of California harbor porpoise, the vaquita marina (Phocoena sinus) and interactions with shrimp production in the Gulf of California; third-party reviews on sea turtle protection measures and compliance with Turtle Excluder Devise (TED) use in Mexico; and supported the construction of sea turtle monitoring and nest protection camps in the Gulf of Mexico for the Kemps ridley, the tortuga lora (Lepidochelys kempii) and other endangered sea turtle species.

The Mexican Council have always supported and will continue to support controlled fishing regulations and laws that promote the sustainability of all fish species we offer. It is in our best interest to do so as this directly affects the future viability of our producers, importers, government and non-government agencies, and the communities we work with.

The Mexican Shrimp Council advocates for seafood that is produced with sustainable fishing operations with legal gear and in areas that do not impact protected resources like the endangered vaquita marina. All of our product is fully traceable to ensure the importers and their customers receive products that are produced sustainably in compliance with all applicable laws and protected areas such as The Vaquita Refuge, a no fishing zone.
