Colombia’s aquaculture industry is focusing on expanding exports by offering high-quality products raised on the Caribbean coast.

The industry has benefited from the scientific work of the Colombian Aquaculture Research Center, or Ceniacua, which has helped improve the quality of species from its base in Punta Canoa, located about 20 kilometers (12.4 miles) from Cartagena.
