Shrimp

There definitely are shrimp being maricultured in the San Blas area.

There are crawdads (crawfish, mud bugs) being maricultured in Lago Presa El Infiernillo on the way up the mountain to Patzcuaro.

There are oysters being seeded for pearls in San Carlos.

There are bound to be other critters being raised too.

"Maricultured". Interesting word, and no doubt technically and scientifically accurate. Much more palatable than, say, "shrimp farms", or "fish farms." Kinda like Albertans wanting the avoid the phrase "tar sands", preferring the more benign "oil sands".
I've been told that some (much?) of the shrimp sold here comes from shrimp farms in the Far East....Thailand or Vietnam. And that most of the shrimp caught in the Mazatlan area is exported to Japan, where it commands much higher prices. But those could just be rumours.
