Ecuadorian shrimp packers are returning to work in larger numbers as the country moves into what it deems "phase two" of the coronavirus health crisis, the National Chamber of Aquaculture (CNA) said.

Although shrimp producers, who mainly work in remote areas, have not been directly affected by social distancing measures, logistics challenges in both markets and the country itself caused processors' production to decline to just 30 percent of capacity since the onset of the crisis.
