Oyster Farming on the Rise in Eastern Cuba

SANTIAGO DE CUBA.- The Punta Gorda Business Unit, in the eastern Cuban province of Santiago de Cuba, will create a new oyster farm in the Aserradero town to doble its output by 2013.

Specialists in this company are also studying other areas on the south coast of Cuba where to raise this mollusc of high nutritional value and acceptance by the population.

There is at the moment only one oyster farm in Santiago de Cuba: El Mazo, which is undergoing a total rehabilitation process to grow in terms of output and offers to the population in eastern Cuba.

The Punta Gorda’s 12 workers, including five women, aim at surpassing this year the 13 ton-plan and create the conditions to double that figure by 2013, still far from their best productions, when in 1987 recorded a record 52 tons, crew chief Raul Rivera told ACN news agency.

Farmers must tend the racks to remove seaweed and algae that can choke off the flow of water, and they need to patrol for natural predators such as crabs.

This unit was created 35 years ago, and recently received fishing gear, transportation means and improvements in the areas of processing. They are selling its production in a selling kiosk by the road that connects Santiago to Granma.
