Cuba Increases over 270 metric tons Lobster Capture
Luis Leonel Lima, deputy director of this compound located in La Coloma town, reported that the planning up to September was to capture 58.8 tons of lobsters, but even after the devastation caused by hurricanes Ike and Gustav to the infrastructure, especially in the roofing of the storage facilities, they were able to increase the level of capture four times. This compound completed the year’s plan with 1,045 tons.

Lobster’s capture must stop now due to the beginning of the close season in October and November. Japan and the European Union are the main destination for this product, processed under demanding quality, hygiene and efficiency norms, in order to assure its commercialization, greatly needed at this difficult time for Cuban economy.
