Valuing the Linkages Between the Shrimp Fishery and Mangroves in Campeche, Mexico: This case will provide an example of market based valuation.
This presentation was commissioned by the Environment Network of the Regional Policy Dialogue for the III Hemispheric Meeting celebrated on March 9th and 10th, 2004. There are very productive shrimp stocks in the surrounding gulf waters. They support a large fishery which produces valuable food for national consumption and export. In 1991 it employed 13% of Campeche's total labor force.
