Mexico City - The U.S. government has certified that the programs implemented by Mexico's shrimp industry to protect sea turtles are acceptable, opening the way for shrimp fishermen to continue exporting their catch to the United States, the Mexican Agriculture Secretariat said.

Mexico's shrimp industry exported 26,182 tons of the crustaceans, including both shrimp caught in the wild and shrimp grown on farms, to the United States in 2012, generating $251 million in revenues, the secretariat said.

The U.S. State Department announced on July 26 that Mexico had taken the necessary measures to reduce the incidental capture of sea turtles by fishing boats.
