Shrimp food factory project in El Salvador

Aquaculture in El Salvador

Alternative farming

El Salvador is a country on the Pacific ocean coast. Finding additional food sources is always a challenge and opportunities exist for an ever growing export market. There are many small shrimp production cooperatives that have a challenge to produce feed for the shrimp.

S.H.A.R.E. assists with increasing shrimp production

S.H.A.R.E. provided the funds to assist in building and equipping a factory to produce feed pellets that will be purchased by a number of local shrimp cooperatives. The shrimp food production will benefit over 30 shrimp cooperatives (estimated over 600 families) in the ANTA organization.

Project Contact Details

Project Leader: Carl Fletcher

As a 40+ year donor I’ve supported S.H.A.R.E.'s practical and effective projects that help people help themselves. Upon retirement from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture Food and Rural Affairs, I volunteered as a Projects Committee member. I am now Project Manager for El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras projects. I am a Professional Agrologist and a Canadian Association of Farm Advisors member. I value that each S.H.A.R.E. project requires the beneficiaries to ‘Pass on' a benefit to others in recognition of the help the project has given them.
